Frazoir is spot on with his comment. Definitely a good place to get the uni groups ;)

Fine crag although some of the less popular routes could do with more traffic to keep them clean (plenty of other crags in Northumberland could do with a bit of a rest)

Some great climbs, however, be aware of the green mossy, slimey, powdery stuff, they will cause gear (especially cams) failure. Also at some climbs the rock is not as strong and it can break.
Some of the grading at the crag is very inconsistent, so don't assume the general logic of british grading at this crag.

Very green in late may. Some of the classics had enough traffic that it wasn't a problem but 80% of the grag had 3mm of green flaky stuff all over it.

Prone to 'going off' early in the season when prolonged damp weather results in greasy conditions, but great when dry. Tends to dry quickly in summer esp when windy (eposed) so don't be put off by a splash or two of rain. Grab 'Delicatessen' - delightful VS (MVS?) with a bit of slab (not well protected), a bit of crack work, finishing on an exposed face. Chuffing brill.

Insufficient traffic!? Very green and slippery, even on the 3 star routes, despite only being October. Potentially fantastic, but dissapointing
