SUMMERTIME AREA


A set of north-facing cliffs that offer shady climbing in the hotter months. A cool breeze often blows down the valley, helping ameliorate the temperatures, though the approach to the cliffs can get you hot under the collar. The actual Summertime crag is the only one of these cliffs to see a lot of action; it can be VERY busy despite the fact that the routes aren't all that good - such is the draw of the shade. Magoulias Wall sees a fair few visitors and is worth a look as an alternative.
