The clutch of climbs on the Mexican Wave offer a fine venue for muscle junkies who like a bit of air beneath their feet. There is a full grade spread from 7a to 7c+. The area is popular with non-climbers so watch your swearing.
Approach - From the main quarry, follow the easy way down to the lower sea-level ledges. The Mexican Wave Area is at the back of the non-tidal ledge in a small rectangular cave.
