Climbs at this crag
Park carefully in village and do not block resident's gates. If necessary, use carpark of pub up the road.
NOTE FROM LOCAL RESIDENT - APRIL 09
I live in the very small cul-de-sac which is the gateway to this climb. Most times there is no problem with parking here but when we have deliveries such as heating oil the driver can not deliver.
There is plenty of parking near the Neuk pub only 50yds up the hill.
So please please be considerate to local residents.

Does anyone know what is going on with the destruction of the Pit Block?
A very large chunk was broken off upper-left corner about 2ftx2ft, earlier in the year. This was obviously done with tools by force and without much regard to limiting the visual damage. More recent marks indicate that someone has been at it again to remove the remaining lower section.|

Great haunt! I'm biased cos' I'm always going down there - no boulder buddies in a Trad kingdom!!
Top five problems anyone?
1. The Pendulum and Pain , Font 7a+**. (The Pit Boulder.)
2. The True Prow, Font 7a****. (Sea Pig.)
3. Shake Your Booty, Sit Down start, Font 7a**. (Sports wall)
4. Slap and Tickle, Harder variant, Font 6c****. (The Brocolli Garden)
5. Cross Over, Brit Tech 6a** (Warm-Up Wall)
P.S. Those hawk-eyed individuals will notice that the 'crimp of the devil' on the sports wall has snapped off!
Crimp of the Devil has now become even harder, bugger!
