Calcite Bay

Situated about 200m further on than Black Wall right, this bay of rock is easily reached by the obvious fisherman’s path down to Sinners Wall and then working back north: it lies about 200m before the building atop the cliffs. It has a handful of good little routes. It can also be gained by traversing south from Black Wall
