Went for a look this week, there are some good problems and the crag has a nice outlook but it is really overgrown. Anyone wanting to climb here will have to do some cleaning first. Far from the Maddening Crowds looks fantastic for anyone wanting a 7C project. It has a layer of lichen at the moment but it looks like it would be easy to clean on an ab rope.
