Crag features
Solid pockety rock, quick to dry. Some great routes, single- and multi-pitch routes up to 160ft, including Spitting Image (HVS 5b) and Weasels Rip My Flesh (E4 6a - "one of the best routes in the Pass") and Over The Beach (E6 6b).

Access notes
As for Gravestones, and then follow round to Cwm Glas Bach: the crag comes into view on reaching a col, just before a large stone wall.
