So much variation possible. Probably ended up doing some pitches closer to HS.

seconded first pitch then decided to unrope, great route
punj - Solo - 16/May/14 with Russell Shanks, Alan Sewl

Great day out, easy climbing but we made some of the pitches a bit interesting by choosing lines that look exiting!
DavidMcK - AltLd - May/14

Choose the hardest lines we could. So much variation possible. Top day out.
jacobfinn - AltLd O/S - 25/Aug/13 with jjax

Led 1st pitch (40m) and 3rd pitch. Great route with a lot of variation so was picking out the harder lines to make it more interesting.

The setting certainly warrants 3 stars, the climb wasn't too impressive though. Very loose all the way up. Great day out and excellent weather for November

Good climbing in an impressive setting, but the number of big loose blocks is a bit disconcerting!

Moved together on this quite efficiently, we were craving something more difficult but a bit wet on lower sandstone tier of crag.
