Living on the west coast of the Rosguill peninsula, a few km north of Downings Village this dolerite sea cliff provides a goods day’s climbing with outstanding views over Sheephaven Bay towards Horn Head. Its location on the peninsula is by far the quietest and least travelled as the east coast and the north end is absolutely heaving with visitors in the summer months. The rock is sound as it is not uncommon for huge north-west seas to roll into Sheephaven Bay in the winter months. The routes so far, follow all the main features of the wall with the grades of routes being in general on the easier side but there is definitely potential for harder new climbs.
Access to the crag is by a short walk along the coast from the road end to the north. There is very little room for parking and the walk to the crag involves crossing through several working fields. To get to the base of the crag is by abseil to mostly large tidal ledges with most of these ledges requiring a low to mid-tide to avoid wet feet. The rock along the clifftops is sound but with very sharp edges in places best to bring a few rope guards and some padding to protect your abseil.
