Hidden away underneath the Portocolom lighthouse is an exciting venue, which is more suited to the roof-hungry boulderer. The classics of the area are "The Princess of Transilvania" (7a+) and "I Live in a Cave" (6b).

The lines on the lower section are short which suits most soloers but the longer routes which top out are quite committing and generally don't see that many ascents. Retreat is usually by jump or reversing "I Live in a Cave".

To the right side of the crag is a large platform where you can stow your gear and hang out. It is also one of the few soloing venues were you can easily spectate without having actually to climb.
