Steep, very steep sea cave. Warm up on the 6c+ then launch into the 7s. 2hr tidal window either side so 4-5 hrs if you are lucky. Try not to get cut off by the varying tides/swell. Escape west unless you fancy a long walk.
Park at the end of Mill Lane. Walk past Rosedew Farm to the coast path, walk east a short way from the stranded kissing gate. Descend Fisherpersons' Ledges (9 routes here). Walk 300yds W to Far West Wing (13 routes). Approach and escape the very tidal Stout Point from/to the west (passing the West Wing). The cave is set into the point.
