Climbs 33 – Rocktype Diorites – Altitude ? – Faces W

Crag features
Short climbs on clean grey diorite. The HVS' in the gully below the fort are testpieces, but are dry on most HW. The stack off the back of the fort with most of the climbs on is reached by crossing a very tidal gully. Some bouldering around, especially traversing on the walls of the fort.
