The center piece of this area is the Flying Buttress which forms a huge natural arch. There are many fine cliffs in this area, with the majority having easy access points from above.

A good landmark to aim for are the old gun emplacements that form the top of The Battery cliff.

Getting There 

The simplest way to get to this area is to walk west along the quarter wall. When you reach the cliffs you see the old battery and the Flying Buttress.
