Nice enough for a quick trip out from Bristol. Directions are also bit off, stay on the main path to the right from car parking, past the stone wall, past the crossroads with another path, underneath a big dead tree which has fallen across the path, then up a rubble slope on the left. Beware snapping holds and loose stuff up top.

Neat little crag.

great little place, like a mini goblin coombe. Definitely want to come back with a rope for the E1 and sport routes. Too damn cold/snowy for anything other than the Severe today though.

Great little crag. There is an endless amount of link-ups being made.
