I have climbed at the Big Cliff a few years ago. The rock crumbles in your hands - which is good in way cause you can make your own holds! It was also really windy - communication is a big problem. I was with inexperienced climbers so I wanted to belay as far up as possible to avoid a scramble off - which meant belaying in the grass - with my feet suck in the dirt. The bolts I saw were completely forgetable, I wopuldn't trust wires either, cams are ok if plugged nice and deep .

I wouldn't compare the rock I saw at the Big Cliff to Coles Bay in any way. I love Coles Bay - I hate the Big Cliff.
