NY 349129 750m N Facing. A reliable winter crag due to its high altitude and aspect. Often in condition when Tarn Crag and Falcon Crag are stripped off. Characterised by short intense routes. It is possible to abseil from the top for quick descending between routes. Approach as for Falcon Crag. Descent: Absiel 50m or walk round to the N (Right side looking at the crag)
