There are three main boulders, all with good landings, on a wide rock platform, backed by a vertical wall with many other possibilities. In line with flavour of the place, we have just indicated some of the more obvious lines - there is plenty more to do. In addition there is another nice wall immediately north of the area and numerous boulders all along the shore back to St Bees village. Guidebook page 164.
