Cooks up some fantastic experiences.

The flake on "CRITHMUM" has gone leaving a dirty and loose groove in its place. Its not too bad if you are careful and i guess will clean up in time but i would give it HVS 5a and 1 star at most.
The Pylon King - 13/Aug/07

An inspiring small crag, though not sure you could spend more than a day or two there at any grade. April 2006 - The stakes at the top seem to have somehow disappeared; we couldn't find any! However, there is still enough large, sturdy rock at the top to give confident abseiling.

amazing steep crag with dramatic but well protected routes - worth spending a couple of days at.
