Crag features
Better than it looks when you arrive, a nice days climbing, it's not such a good crag for those climbing at low grades). it's better for HVS-E2.

The guidebook says that belay stakes are in place on North and Blakey Buttresses. We didn't visit Blakey Buttress, but North Buttress has a single rather suspect stake which will do for the central routes. The routes on left and right of the buttress have no belays - sit in the depression a few metres back from the crag top and think immovable thoughts.

In an amazing setting over-looking farndale with exelent soloing on the clean north butress, esecially digimon and captain birdseye. I couldn't find a belay stake however about 10-15 metres back there is a massive crater with a boulder in the bottom if nesecary.

Ace place for HVSs. Mint setting.

There is a stake next to a large rock (hidden in the bilberry bushes) on the North Buttress that can be used to protect Cote Crack etc. The stake in the centre can be used for Motley Crew and Pugwash, along with a firm stance.

Great little crag, i have some great memories of this spot. First HVS and first proper E2! A sun trap in the afternoon and the climbing is good. The North Buttress is clean and good quality, the main buttress is MUCH better than it looks. Worth a visit for sure.
