Crag features
The Climbing

Although short, the routes are generally on solid rock with good gear placements. Skull slab is probably one of the best v diffs you'll find in the country. Looking at the crag from the road, the far left side has three short recorded climbs. The most prominent feature is Skull Buttress where the best climbing is to be found. The routes have been originally named based on features on the rock likened to the parts of a skull and hence the slightly morbid names! 200m to the right of Skull Buttress there is a small slab with some pleasant routes.
