This fine, outstanding buttress (in every sense of the word) is a delight, and home to a clutch of excellent multi-pitch up-and-sideways jaunts, such as the very exposed excursion of Welcome to the Cruise (HVS) and, if you add that elusive two-pitch classic, Deep Throat (E3), you'll have more than enough to throw yourself at for a day (and possibly the night too...). The buttress is hard to view from the coast path, meaning knowledge is only gained after committing to an approach, although the photo to the right helps. Maximum adventure found right here - dust off your abseil rope and get on board. Access - Currently none of the routes listed here on Triple Overhang are restricted although please only use an abseil approach during the nesting season from 1 March to 1 August. In the past there have been restrictions here so check the BMC Access database if you are unsure.
