I freed the route up the main face last night. Think its e1 5b if anyone wants to get on and give a second opinion I'll be around to belay as I live close by. I'm on 07732245973. We could work the arÍte too- I think it will go at e1 or e2.

A friend and me climbed there a couple of times when we were younger as it was close to home, There used to be a couple of pegs hammered in half way up and a good tree at the top for beylaying

Is anyone climbing here yet? I have recently moved to the area and I am looking for places to climb and people to climb with.

A tree has recently come done further up the Clough exposing another promising corner. I'll try and get some pics and post.

The clough is an atmospheric place, and makes for a nice short walk. Most of the rock looks pretty crumbly, with the exception of the Main Wall, which just might yield a few routes and boulder problems.
