Sheltered

A fine and popular crag with a great set of routes on superb pocketed rock. Some of the pitches are very long and the place is often busy.
Approach - Drive to Arginonta and continue round the bend for a couple of hundred metres to the Sea Breeze parking. Walk up to Sea Breeze then jig left to scramble up to the wall - 10 mins. It is also possible to scramble up the stream bed just north which brings you the left-hand side of the cliff instead.

The grey rib is tricky done direct - drifting right is too easy.

The name is a fair clue. As sharp as a really sharp thing.

Avoid the crux bulge of In Dubio by the crack on the right - scruffy.

The central line on the grey wall. Weave about to keep the grade down otherwise it is a good grade harder.

Nice climbing, the bolts are a bit spaced, but are where you need them most.
