A great little cliff, slabby and tall, in a sunny position and with the added attraction of only being a few minutes from the road. There are only a few routes here but the star count is high with a number of classics at amenable grades.

The crag faces south and is free draining, as such it makes a viable venue for most of the year and can be especially pleasant on clear winter days. The slope below the crag is thick with bracken in high summer.
