Going tomorrow. Do I need hi tide to jump off without breaking my legs? Looks good for a bit of fun. Any other beta?

Not done it but yeah think you need a high tide and to jump into a fairly specific spot apparently, maybe worth checking at low tide when you can see rocks etc then wait for tide to come in and do it then... HTH

Definitely need high ish tide. I'd swim first, then climb and jump.
Jealous. I miss the coast so much in hot weeks like this. Have fun.

Did this years ago, thought the jump looked well sketch and didn't want to get my kamets wet so down climbed it after the obligatory photo at the top. You will need a good high tide for the jump I reckon, calm sea as well.

Should you revisit this thread - high tide needed to jump, but make getting to it without a soaking hard. Even at high tide, water is only about a couple of metres deep, and then only in one specific spot (exactly where Nick Hancock is heading in the picture from SD&D guide). Take a spring high and a dry bag, the swim to hand keeping kit dry and legs intact on dismount.

There were some cracking waves hitting it last week. I take it you didn't do it then?
