Crag features
Reasonable quality rock, with routes up to 25m long. Unfortunately it is surrounded by trees, is being quarried away at the right and the owner isn't keen on climbers being there. Just worth the effort of a visit for the impressive Private Targets (E1 5b) and Speak the Truth (E5/6 6b).
