Sheltered

The lower roadside level, up as far as Jake's Wall, is easily accessible all year and has a variety of types of problem on some nice blocs. The upper level has some great problems, some highball, and all a pain to get at when the bracken is high. The boulders are described in an anti-clockwise loop. Guidebook page 101.
