This is the first group reached from the Apiary Wall area, when you pop out of a rock tunnel. A nice area with some superb walls and aretes. When the rock platform is wet, it can be incredibly slippery - be careful around all these boulders not to fall in the sea.

The Arete
The fantastic arete taken direct is baffling to start but only V5 for the tall. A St Bees must-do. The sit-down start is V8.
