ended up at this crag by accident, glad we did! Worth a visit.

The block with the cross appears to offer a good anchor, but it is in fact loose.

A nice, small and compact butress, 15 mins from the campsite and really nice routes

Is there a reason for the cross scratched into one of blocks at the belay ledge ath the end of Abberation's first pitch?
