Climbs 45 – Rocktype Slate – Altitude 300m a.s.l – Faces E

Crag features
Contains the wonderful Seamstress Slab, which is as good an introduction to slate as any, with Seamstress (VS 4c) and Seams The Same (E1 5b), both low in the grade. Also offers rather fiercer E6s and E7s if you'd prefer.

Access notes
From the dip in the path by Dali's Hole continue for about 200m past a circular slate air vent on the L. Walk back a few metres later between the vent and fence up a little path. Don't jump the fence. At the second level bear R past a large hut (some rail lines) to the Serengeti Plain.

an awesome crag. Normally out of the wind, and south facing too, so it makes a great day out. Routes go between VS-Esomething silly, so caters for a lot of people.
