A fine sector of lower-grade climbs, perfect for beginners and first leads. The two routes to the right provide an opportunity to practice multi-pitch techniques. Helmets are strongly advised as there are routes above. A few oaks provide shade at the base. Lower-offs usually consist of two unlinked rings which should both be threaded when used as a belay/lower-off. Ensure beginners know what is expected of them before they leave the ground.
