An interesting set of walls stretching away right until the crag fizzles out. There is quite a selection of butch cracks here and some more open stuff. The cliff finishes with the jutting snout of The Thoroughbred and its excellent collection of climbs - queuing not normally needed for these boys! If treated as boulder problems they should be considered 'highballs' so bring a mat or three.
