Crag features
Great little crag for sunny summer evenings. Some excellent views can be had from the top. Limited parking is available in a lay-by directly under the crag, after passing Scout Crag Caravan site. Located 40m up the hillside in the trees. Good range of sport climbing and the imposing roof section has an array of good routes at E3+

Access notes
Follow a rubble path from the north end of the lay-by. Coppicing and limited use means that the path leading up from the road is well vegetated, please be conscientious of the environmentally sensitive area.

Spent a very pleasant day at the crag today. Winter meant that vegetation was low for the most part. Bolts on most routes are in good condition, as too are lower-offs. Going to contact local environmental bodies to enquire about cutting back some of the bramble, particularly on the decent paths.

There are two types of bolts in use here, u shaped ones mortared in and the normal screwed in D thingies. The D ones are alright but the U ones are loose or badly corroded. Also got 5 tick bites from this place.
