Hidden by bracken in late summer and autumn but easy to find in spring. As per guidebook, go up to the gate but turn left straight up the hill about 100m after the gate instead of 400 - walk straight up until you get to a small col, go over and you'll see the lower crag ahead on the other side of a dip. Very little gear on most routes I tried but they were also over-graded.

Quite a good bet for a busy weekend, usually pretty quiet. Faces the sun,quick drying with good friction. Mostly slabby routes with flared cracks, so protection is a bit tricky, along with belays but with a good hunt around you can usually find something. Lower crag is about 30 metres high and the Upper around 60 metres. Can be difficult to find trailing through the bracken. Best to bring a machete.
