A popular crag, steep and with an good selection of hard routes. Much of the rock stays dry in the rain, though once the seepage has started, it can take a while to dry. The crag is very sheltered. Guidebook page 294.

Fine climbing up the leaning grooves and through the bulges. The grade of the extension is not known though it doesn't look as...
