Although short the routes pack in a punch and are mostly well protected. Came here instead of the usual Wanneys and was not disappointed, a good day was had.

"Although probably not worth the travel for experienced climbers." ...Except for the six E1s and two E2s of course! It's a great afternoon or evening out for E1/E2 teams.

I have been looking for some crags not to severe for my girlfriend to start off with and found a lovely little route here. Old ash crack is a 9m climb that is perfect for the beginner, text book placements and a nice solid confidence booster for anyone starting off. It also had some great Mid range climbs I realy enjoyed getting my tips onto myself. Although probably not worth the travel for experienced climbers.
