Chapel Point is well worth a look as the two obvious ticks of Ultravixens (E1) and Ultravox (E2) are brilliant, and the rest of the wall harbours some pretty impressive territory, if not quite up to the same high standard.
Approach and Tides - Low tide approach - Walk down some polished steps, with little bits of sandpaper glued on them, to the remains of the old chapel. Continue through this and head rightwards to a spectacular narrow arch. Walk through this, or around it, to a gently rising platform on the other side. This leads to the non-tidal ledge at the base of the routes.
