Midway along the crag is the striking line of Great Corner whilst the Ocean Wall is directly above the beach nearest to the sea wall. These steep and sunny walls have a lot of climbs on them, however the rock is not uniformly solid and the fixed gear is old. The slopes above the wall are steep and are composed of grass and sand. The stakes on the grass slope maybe missing or old in which case an extra rope will be needed to reach the rock walls above to secure a belay.
