Description 

Kind of a fun warm up. Easy and mellow, (mental?) crux maybe near the top. Either downclimb the route or walk off the steps leading to the dock attached to the house on top and to the left. The walkoff is rocky and heavily vegetated. If you're comfortable downclimbing the route, that's probably the better option.

Location 

Across the harbor from Pete's Pub. The route is located on the face immediately left of the big cave (the one closer to the mouth of the harbor). Swim/kayak/etc to the cave, put on your shoes in the mouth of the cave, traverse left on the edge near the water about five feet and go up the easy vertical face.

Protection 

It may be possible to set up a toprope, but it would be extremely difficult with a bunch of slings equalized off of tiny trees and bushes. At high tide, there may be some fall protection from slightly deeper water. When I originally climbed it, it was in between tides and shin-deep water, which wouldn't provide much protection. Either way, it's essentially a free solo.
