Crag features
Want to "feel" like a new route pioneer? A nice collection of good lines, but green climbs. During a dry summer spell, this crag can be a nice place to take in a bit of easily accessible "wilderness". Take a brush and a tin of elbow grease! Recommended route: Flake groove traverse (severe)
