Crag features
A steep crag, though routes are also technical. Still scope for few more new routes. Needs more ascents now to keep it clean. In recent times, the bouldering has been well developed, with many problems in the 7th grade.

Tim Greenhalgh and Friends have done a really good job of bringing this crag into the lime light. Well worth a visit, I was surprised how dry it stays in wet weather.
