It is now very overgrown and has and abundance of very loose rock. Looks to be a good venue if you'd like to clear each route before attempting it.

This could be a good venue, unfortunately its becoming somewhat overgrown. Lots of loose rock in places, particulalry at the top of the cliff. Still, some very good routes and well worth a visit if your in the area
