The centrepiece of Bosigran is packed with classics to suit most tastes and abilities. This section of the crag has the rare accolade of being host to routes in Classic, Hard and Extreme Rock. The main face has some impressive overhangs and big horizontal breaks. Linking these breaks are some of brilliant and popular multi-pitch routes. Further right the wall is more slabby and has a host long and climbs that, although slightly wandering, are nevertheless packed with brilliant and exposed climbing at a more amenable grade. The majority of the climbs have accommodating belay ledges.
