Unknown climber on the final runout slab of Harleq...

Description 

A classic crack and face line that provides some spectacular climbing on coastal sea-cliffs. Harlequin ascends a obvious buttress near the center of Whitewater Wall.

Protection 

Camalots to #3 and stoppers

Getting There 

Start of route is not from the base of White Water Wall itself, but by following a track south from the campsite to steps going down to a ramp leading down to the base of the cliffs.

Not sure about PG13 - the slab can seem a little runout at the very top if you aren't confident on granite slabs, but there is good gear below you. Generally very well protected.
