The first climb starts from the beach or when the sea is in can be reached by belaying from the large ledge on the right and stepping down a couple of meters to a high tide mark ledge. Either way you gain a small ledge 2m below a wide crack. The best belay is 30m up the bank!
60m south-west of Sinister Sister Zawn is a yellow wall with a distinctive calcite patch and a large ledge at half-height to the right.
- Hey Mr Blue Sky - E1,5b
Cimb the wide crack to pass the ledge on the right. An awkward move gains the chockstone. Pull up onto the headwall and over the bulge, In place of the old peg, a nut can be used in a crack to the right to protect the friable finishing moves. 18m.
- Banana Split - E2,5c
Start at the large ledge at half-height on the right. Post rock fall this route offers technical climbing with no protection at all until a nut can be placed where the old peg was at 8m (shared with previous route). Ascend the groove on the left side of the ledge until a hard move gains the upper wall. Move right, making thin moves to finish directly. 12m.
