Spectacular setting, beautiful location. Rock is dense and blocky in places. Most, if not all, of the easier routes (Diff-Sev) have been trashed beyond belief by outdoor centres. I have never seen polish so bad. Apparently even the outdoor centres don't go there anymore as the routes are too trashed even for them. i.e. if you are thinking of this location as somewhere to start leading, look elsewhere. Anything above severe appears OK though.
