A handy roadside crag. Good, sound rock. The harder routes tend to take lines up clean rock. Unfortunately, not the case for most of the easier routes which have varying levels lichen, moss and dirt. Some of the lines take drainage from the hill above, and remain wet for a few days after heavy rainfall. Some of the belays take a little thought and searching for. If this crag were in a more populated area it would probably be very popular and kept clean by the number of climbers doing the routes.
