A fine section of cliff that has been fully developed since the last Rockfax guide. The bulging wave-like rock is covered with pockets, jugs and tufas giving routes of length and variety. The left-hand section has mainly long hard and steep pitches and the right-hand side is less steep and has many full-height mid-grade routes. The lines are fairly close together and although the names of some routes are painted on the rock, it can still be a little confusing so spend some time picking out your precise line before you set off. The crag offers dry climbing during wet spells. Guidebook page 156.
