Like the Bigger Piece Area, the climbs on this wall are well worth the effort of the long approach.
Approach - Drive to Portland Bill and park in the car park (fee). Walk back up the road past the Pulpit Inn and head out leftwards up a minor road towards the Coastwatch Lookout. Just before the Coastwatch Lookout, go down a grass slope to the cliff edge (see map on page 166) then descend a steep and precarious path (rope sometimes in place) onto a promontory and then continue down right to below Coastguard North. Walk north under this, past a gully, to reach Wallsend South. The wall is about mid-way along Wallsend Cove, so it can also be approached from either the north.

Some good, open face climbing in its upper half. Take care low down as the bolts are spaced and the rock friable.

Climb to the roof and make a long move over it to an easy rockover using hidden holds above. Quality, sustained climbing...

A fine white wall. The second piece of gear is a peg.
