I took a walk upto this climb on 28/05/09 seems though I live 5 minutes drive away, and the walk took me 45 minutes. I thought I would let other people know so nobody gets confused or lost!? There is a cave with a small fence which is a great safe haven if weather turns bad, it offers shelter from the wind and rain. I took a 15 minute rest there so I was out of the sunlight and it was great.
