A quiet crag with a small selection of rather fine routes: Truss Buttress (VD) Kennel Wall (MS), Fang (MVS), Hernia (HVS), Fang Direct (HVS), Bloodhound (E2), One Step Beyond (E3), The Keswickian (E8).
Similar bouldering nature with a few real classics.
Very limited careful parking on road by footbridge (15 mins walk), more parking back along road in obvious roadside area (25 mins total walk). Cross the river via the stepping stones and follow a path just above the dry stone wall to cross a secret bridge then steeply up the hillside to Truss Buttress. Other approaches usually end in ferns.
|The limited parking by the (new) footbridge seems to be part of the flood improvements which are currently under construction. I suspect that it will disappear when the work is finished.
25 minutes for the approach seems rather optimistic - it took us over 30 minutes to walk down!|

|Good climbing, Id recommend Kennel Wall and Zivago Sassenach to anyone going here. The slightest bit of rain and the rock becomes slippy as ice but it dries incredibly quickly.|
