Around the corner lies the second hollow, known as The Pulpit Amphitheatre. All the routes finish at stake belays.
Tides - It is non-tidal, but keep away in rough seas.
Approach - Descend down into the Lecture Theatre on its west side (right - looking out) below the cliff-top gearing-up ledges. There is a stake in place for abseils, but most climbers will be able to scramble down. The Isis Area lies to the left of the descent (looking out).
