This impressive-looking crag is easily spotted from the road that runs beneath it, but unfortunately on closer inspection it is not quite as good as it would first appear. Nevertheless it is well worth a quick visit to pick off the best on offer and the views are fantastic. The left and central sectors are of most interest to the visitor whilst on the right-hand side of the crag are some much harder climbs that see little if any attention and are not described here.
