Fantastic on a clear winters day. I went at the end of jan '06 and it was shorts + t shirt weather. Dry as a bone and no wind with a 15 min walk in. The sun works its way round the crag through the day so you can stay warm all day. Only short but quality climbing on great rock though the E numbers seemed a serious proposition with little gear.
