There is a large loose block just above the start of Feizor. Attempts to dislodge it have left it sticking out at an angle - a pull from below would remove it, but I wouldn't recommend trying!

Nice venue with some great routes, starting the climbs was harder than expected. Overall nice area with fairly solid rock.

Good climbing but they can be hard starts (no protection) with possible broken limbs if you fall before the first protection is placed. Apert from that it's a great place.

A great little venue for ticking off some good VSs. Easy access, south facing and solid.

Good mid-grade choice. Dries quick as is approach.PM sun and not much loose. If trad lime suits and/or no gritstone dry worth a peep
