Uphill
Sheltered

A fine tower plastered with big holds. A sunny aspect and good sunbathing ledges add to the attractions. It was the scene of the first routes on the crag back in the early 1990s.

The left-hand route on the face is steep and then eases a bit.

Another classic, starting up the central groove then heading left up the daunting head-wall. Quite uphill at the grade.
