The first climbing is by the High Peak Trail that runs along under the crag.The left-hand piece of rock is a squat boulder which has some worthwhile problems. Further right is a tall narrow slab which is popular with beginners and groups. Although both bits of rock face south, they are usually shaded by the tree-cover.
