Agree with other comments that this is a superb place for beginners to learn on. However, its also very polished and placing good protection is difficult so I would suggest that the grading in uptodate books is about right - more VDiff/HVDiff than Mod now IMHO

I was climbing here with a group on saturday 15th October and one of my group picked up a stack of gear left behind. If it belongs to you let me know and i will try and get it back to you.

Was introduced to climbing here a few years ago. Easter 2011 saw me introducing my partner, luckylegs to climbing outdoors and me to leading and multipitching. Fantastic slab.

Lots of mod and diff cracks but there is some severe stuff between them. Also great fun to watch the instructors leading groups :)

good for beginners, but don't take the grading too seriously . most of it is mod or dif.

Alot of the spikes that people can use for belays are now working lose, be careful.

Fantastic crag to either cut your teeth multipitching or introducing a climbing partner to it. The rock is sound with good gear placements and an aspect that catches afternoon sun.
