Perhaps the easiest access to some parts of this cliff may be by abseil ... once you know exactly where you are. Abseil point difficult to find. Otherwise it is best to descend a grassy gully to reach a fisher-mans ledge ... a short down-climb or little abseil gets you to a traverse in (rope protected). Abseil off the wrong place at the top and you will end up dangling above the sea.
