Uphill

A magnificently located spot with a number of worthwhile lines that are very unlikely to have other teams climbing them. The rock is on the whole good and protection is mainly from nuts and cams. Some strong lines are in evidence and give a few good easier climbs worth the longish approach walk. The crag is very exposed and is quick to dry but catches the wind so is not a good place to be in poor weather.
