There's now a fantastic restaurant in the village, well positioned for a post climb meal and beer - but it's advisable to book if you want a table.

Watch out for ticks of the unwelcome type. The path is crawling with them.

60m ropes will get you down in one go from the top of Black Streak on the Main Cliff

It's hard to imagine a more perfect crag. Absolutely stunning!

Just awesome. The Pillar, Northumberland Wall, Black Streak and Route 2 made for possibly the best day's cragging I've ever done.
