The tall left-hand side of the crag has a long diagonal corner/groove running up it. This is the classic Nea. The other routes hereabouts are slightly steeper. It is common to abseil from the tree at the top of Nea - 50m to the ledge at the base of the climb. You can also walk down by climbing the wall behind the top stance for around 10m, then walking up and leftwards to gain the steep descent gully to the west (left - looking in) of the buttress.
