I visited the crag a couple of times recently. It's in great condition, and there's a nice grassy landing for the majority of routes outside the cave. The bolts remain intact for the E5 and E6 that come out the cave, but the hangers have been removed!

Visited the other day, some guy was boasting of chopping bolts. all the same, great small crag on a sunny day if your local.

Cool little crag in an unusual village setting. Despite looking green all the main routes are in fine condition in dry weather and the good sharp little holds are all clean. An evening leading the mid-grade routes (all good - Sorceror is notably substantial for a small crag) followed by refreshments in the pleasant Pear Tree Inn should put a smile on one's face.
