Marble Cove is a big, broad cove, which has a marble texture to it. The main event is the lower traverse, Giraffes. The best viewing point is from the eastern edge of the crag, which is also where Giraffes starts.
Blackboard Wall is a square bay just west of the lone broken wall has a single route up its east face.
Blowhole Zawn is a well-hidden feature is found right below the fence - in fact, the fence runs right down into it. There are two routes in there, and you'll need an abseil rope for one of them.
