Interesting rock, it doesn't seem like limestone to me, more like a metamorphosed sandstone. It's a bit like Gneiss.

Hi love the area just 5mins from house but could use a topo for routes just so I know what I've been climbing over the year. Anyone have/had one for this area? Thanks

Aww shucks thanks Joss! This is a great location for a bit of low-grade bouldering with plenty of variety and enough to keep you occupied for a good while. It could do with some of the harder stuff being entered onto UKC, though you are unlikely to get any first ascents as the crag has been climbed all over for a long time. I will continue to enter problems as I can! M

Cracking little crag. Definatly worth a visit for the view alone! If you're a number chaser however then it may not be for you as i didn't spot any project lines. I'll be compiling a mini record/guide for myself. If anyone wants a copy email me. Will include annotated photos and maps/topos
