Uphill

A small crag in a super situation looking straight out into the Med. It is close to the road and only a 15 minute drive from the airport and as such makes a good bet on 'going home day. The crag has a good spread of grades with the common arrangment of easier routes on the flanks of the cliff and harder ones on the steeper central section. The fixed gear is generally excellent.

14m. The short crack and groove are the biggest sandbag for miles - a solid 6a might be more accurate!

28m. Devious and interesting - just follow the white arrows! Finish direct or traverse left to utilise the lower-offs there.
