OBELISK AREA


A wonderful area best suited to warm spring and summer days. The bouldering here is quite varied with the strange rock of the Swiss Cheese Wall, the airy highballs of the immaculate Obelisk Wall, the character-building spiciness of Boulder Cove, the powerful roof test-pieces on the Promontory Roof, and the more amenable and easily accessible Lighthouse Beach. The outlook is one of the most pleasant anywhere and suits lazy days sunbathing, cooling your feet in the sea between problems and watching cormorants skim effortlessly across the water. Needless to say, all of this requires calm seas.
