This cliff sits in an absolutely stunning location. It is advisable to locate the metal belay stakes situated in the vicinity of the path on top of the cliff prior to climbing. Take a spare rope to set up an anchor on top using these.
The easiest approach to the only route (so far) is to abseil down the line of the route. It is also possible to bushwhack in via the steep path leading down from the west side of the rim. Beware of idiots throwing stuff off the top as like too many areas of outstanding natural beauty in Bermuda this one is used as a rubbish dump. A lot of bikes have been trundled off the top and now rust in pieces at the base of the cliff.

SINS OF THE FATHERS 20m 5.11b
Climb the overhanging chalky wall via a series of blind pulls past 5 bolts to easier ground at the lip. Continue more easily but with care required past 3 threads to the top.
