A good area that is committing to reach and seldom busy. Approach (see map on page 278) - From the North Stack approach, walk up the track to a plateau and aim for the left-hand col. Walk down the gully to the Easter Island Head and a good racking-up spot. Two 50m ropes, or one 100m rope are needed for the approach. Abseil off blocks down the gully and re-belay at the top of the cliff and abseil down Supercrack into the zawn. With the exception of Supercrack, the starts are reached via a sea-level traverse hence the area should be avoided at high tide or in rough seas Guidebook page 286.
