Superb high-ball boulder problems, but low tide access only.

1
Future Sailors
Grade V1
7m From the centre of the wall, traverse left up a good crack to the bottom of an obvious-enough groove. Head straight up (above the sea), watch for loose rock and don't look down!.
2
Seamonsters
Grade V7
Starting with a deep lock to a pocket, the route opens up with a series of big moves between opposing slopers as you climb a gently overhanging shield of grewacke. It culminates with a wild slap for the sloping lip off a small left hand sidepull and a right hand undercling.
3
Rubicon
Grade V4
6m Climb the wall left of the cleft, using good laybacks and edges. A few smaller holds near the lip make for an exciting finish.
