Visited this crag and the rhodedendrons were in bloom again. Led Kepwick Crack and the top out on slippery grass was horrendous. Managed to fist-jam a rabbit hole which helped significantly.

Visited October 15th 2006 with rhododendrons in flower ! Top roped Kepwick Crack which would be a little gem but for the very dodgy and scruffy finish. "Offside", which is only a 5m HS was a testing little problem with plenty of gear which is just as well because it also has a dodgy finish. Look out for the belay spikes.
