anyway - a better crag than it looks from a distance, and now properly open with the new access laws.

um... not sure the Padder has decking potential. The lower crux is well protected, the upper is a little above the gear but not that serious (especially if a side runner is used).

Nice crag, faces South so good all year. Lower graded climbs get a bit overgrown in spring / summer. Good in the VS to E2 region. "The Padder" is a good first E1 lead if you like slabs, but the crux is a bit exposed with serious decking out potential. Top rope it first if unsure
