General description: An open site that offers moderate protection from the wind. Lots of sun on the majority of the site. Overall, not a bad site, but the thunderbox is a little close due to the size of the island.

Overall accessibility: Without the stairs this site would have limited access. Even with the stairs, the climb is steep.
