Two good "4s" on Citerne 3 © Rog Wilko
Citerne is a pleasantly-situated crag named after the huge water tanks that are partly hidden in the trees below the cliff. The climbing isn't particularly outstanding though the accessibility of the place rather makes up for this. Being so close to the city, it is no surprise that many of the routes, especially the easier ones, are quite polished.
|I think you'll find citerne is French for cistern (which is a water tank, BTW)|

|Citerne? should be Cistern i.e. it's a s***hole. Well bolted but it needs to be due to the really polished nature of the easy routes. A large area of rock looks like it is ready to peel off the crag taking with it Moratorium and anyone underneath the routes either side.|
