This is the Pagat cliff line. The area below is called the washing machine. You should only jump in when the water is calm – and get out quickly. The water here is very dangerous and quickly changes. Now that winter is here it seems we are having weekly rescues or drowning. Respect the water-that’s a lesson I’m learning here.
My first thought as I emerged was… “I fell like a brick!”
I wanted to go again but by the time I got back up it seemed like conditions were already changing.
