Most of this area is on the platform underneath the eponymous crag. It's a complex jumble of blocks, but very compact and not too difficult get to know. All of the problems are worthwhile and landings are generally good. If the platform is wet it can be unbelievably slippery - take care. The descent path drops you right at the top end of this area
