Sea Stack and Arch
Sea Stack and Arch
A graphical illustration of the before and after of sea stack formation.

The stack has been climbed at least twice: one route up the near left hand edge, the other up a south facing wall just around the right hand near edge. Both routes are loose in parts and with less than inspiring protection. Access to the stack is by abseil from the cliff on the left with a swing at the bottom to get across to a ledge on the stack. That position is probably even more dark and damp that it appears in the image.
