Have to agree with Jacks comments about the loose rock at teh top of twin cracks. Quite disconcerting when you stand on it. Wouldn't recomend it to be honest. Nice little crag with enough to keep you busy for a few hours. Was very windy today, and the rock whilst dry was very cold! Must be a lovely spot in the summer. Shame the lines are so short.

Lovely little crag with some very nice, though disappointingly short, lines. Great for breaking into the HVS grade, and nice for them days where everywhere else would be wet. Beware the wobbling block at the top of Twin Cracks, can be disconcerting. Also beware of extreme winds at the top of the crag, tell your partner to shout!

Great Little Crag, with something for everyone. Quick Drying and in a nice location is it well worth a visit. There is also a boulder, called the NOS boulder that lies on the hillside down to the right of Park Nab over the fence. It is also worth a look as there are some 'Grit' like problems

One of the photos attached to this crag is actually Fontainbleau!

(13.04.05)After recent rainfall, there are several rocks that are now loose - in particular the large boulder at the top of 'Holly Tree Wall', this wobbles a fair bit and would be unsuitable to place any protection.
