A fine crag with a good selection of orange and red spot multi-pitch routes in an exposed setting on the steep side of the gorge. The routes are well equipped and an abseil route exists down the centre of the wall. The crag gets morning sun, but it can be cold here if a wind is blowing through the gorge. Guidebook page 297.
