340m. Rockfall November 2018 means the traditional finish of swimming to the promontory and scrambling back up to the mainland is no longer possible. All climbers must continue through the Blue Grotto to the far side of the headland. The climbing is excellent 6a+ but harder if the humidity is high. It is fairly straightforward to swim through the cave if the tide isn't running too strongly.

βeta: An Epic journey through wild scenery. Felt like I was climbing on the moon at some points. Incredible juggy steep climbing, the first Cave and the blue grotto were the highlights, did it at low tide, would be interested to try at high tide
