Crag features
A rare thing for Guernsey - a non-tidal crag! This crag has all grades up to E5 on it, mostly slab/groove lines. Rock quality is generally good for a non-tidal crag, but some gear placements need care as they can be a bit smooth.

Approach notes
The path shown in the guidebook is now overgrown. A new path now follows the track on the eastern side of the valley to the bend where a path cuts down through the gorse and sloes to a notch in the ridge where it then descends westwards to the stream before crossing it and and carrying on down to the crag. Ask someone from the GMC to show you the way!
