Wonderful setting, with good routes. Starting to get really overgrown. The top out of Desire looks impossible to the advances of a nearby tree. The top out p4 is scary, due to the thick level of moss on the rock. Needs a clean!!!

Really nice boulder in an amazing setting, although the top outs are a bit overgrown so you might want to do some surgical brushing of the key holds. The problems are also a tad high on the main face! The short walk-in is also very nice through the forest and along a little river and over a boulder bridge. Well recommended
