There is confusion about Sunburst Red. It is at the right end of the Traverse face, left of the Nose. There is a small 'letterbox' slot 3m up. The VS wall at the right hand end with a prominent hole is Sunburst Blue.

This crag is quite simply outstanding for lower end climbers. Great rock, great gear!

The rock is very lichenous, not good for damp conditions. Excellent little place for a sunny afternoon.

The crag seems to take a couple of days to dry after a wet spell. Nice routes otherwise 30/09/06.

A pleasant day out from Glasgow (we used the train with no problems). Solid, quick-drying rock, bolts atop the crag for easy belays. With nothing too big or scary, this place would seem good for beginers (who don\'t mind the short uphill walk), and the unprotected E3 5b (\'THE arete\') seems strangely inviting...
