After installing a new stake above Ladies First & doing it we found a very large loose block under the overhang of the 4c direct, please take care if anywhere near this as its ready to go. Also check out Final Outcrop area, theres a stake above Green Crack now which should do for a fair few climbs & they could do with more traffic although they're still worthwhile!|

Since most of the trees have been felled at the front this place has got better, it dries quickly apart from winter obviously & I reccomend a visit to the left of the crag as a few routes have been cleaned & are seeing more wind & sun these days, the future seems bright for this place!

It's bangin'! Really good place to have a play at some harder routes. Desperate Den and Moonflower are difficult and technical, but also safe to fall off, so a good intro to 6b and 6c, the other hard routes are either good just to swing a rope down or epic onsight targets. Esmerelda ain't no push-over. The easier routes are a bit rubish, apart from highcliffe crack, which is brilliant.

Dont listen - this crag is usually in a crap state since the forest cover was cut back. It is disintegrating on the right and getting moss covered on the left. Only those climbing at a very high standard will get much out of this crag. Most visitors stick to the defined cracklines to the right as can be seen from the crag record. In 6 visits I have always gone back to repeats of the safe routes.
