DWS (Deep Water Solo) is a relatively small cave above the water going up 30-40 feet with several routes that can be soloed. There are no bolts. Aris Theodoropoulos guide lists 6 routes ranging from 5c (5.9) to 8b (5.13d). The beach above the cave is not developed and has some sharp rocks and lots of thorny plants.
