Ocean Wall

This sector offers quality routes on good rock up the gently overhanging wall. The setting is rather pleasant and also offers good opportunity for a spot of  deep water soloing and cliff jumping from the ramp on the left side.

From the beach connecting to Ap Lei Pai, traverse leftwards around the coastline just above the water line until a short scramble leads down to the crag. Routes 1 to 7 require abseil access to reach the starting ledge.

There is a chain extension on the penultimate bolt.

FA: Francis Haden 13/03/2016
Fantastic climbing on positive holds but no peeking on the abseil if you want a flash!

4 – Marine Interdiction F7a / 7a+, 12m, 7 bolts **
FA: Francis Haden 19/03/2016
From the big jug on Ocean’s 3, blast out left and boulder your way up the wall via series of powerful extended moves.
