In complete contrast to the Roadside and Main Crag, the Upper Crag is strangely isolated compared to the hullabaloo below. The routes here vary from slightly pointless filler-ins to good long wall-climbs on Verdon-esque rock. Guidebook page 84.

Another quality climb starting up an area of scoops and flutings. There is a belay at 25m but you can continue to the top.
