Crag features
The massive wall to the right of Stairway to Heaven has currently one recorded route on the prominent nose of rock starting from a cluster of old buildings, climbing the full height of the headwall via the lower butress, 245m E1, then 300m scrambling, finishing up the final tower at 360m of VS. The lower and upper butresses can be climbed by a retreat/approach respectively from Stairway to Heaven, shortening a v. long day. Scope for all types and quality of new routes abounds in the area!
