In the centre of the bay containing Watch House Crag is a promontory of rock jutting out in the sea. There are some routes located in a short corner where the promontary hits the shoreline, on its west (left when facing inland).

1. V Crack 12m S,4a *

An awkard yet enjoyable little number, well worth seeking out. The obvious corner crack, with a shelf at 2m. Stay in the corner!

2. Broken Wall 12m M

The vague groove right of V Crack and the subsequent slab.
