As the road rounds the bend there is a clean exposed wall almost directly above. If there is a wind blowing then it is likely to be whipping around the corner here. Approach (see map on page 324) - Drive along the Marine Drive to the bend and park with care. The wall is above. aNo climbing before 6pm, on all Bank Holiday weekends and during the 6 week summer holiday.

Avoiding the traversing of the original gives a hard and slightly bold alternative.
