Stumbled across this little crag while out on a walk the other day, as a consequence I can confirm that in December the climbing faces are weeping and covered in lichen. As such (and in walking boots) there wasn't much exploration I could do beyond the Pyramid. With the two overhangs either side, there exists a lot of potential to develop some short pumpy bouldering routes at a variety of grades, from the easiest up, and I may revisit in the future.
With just three faces, between nine and twelve feet high, it's probably not worth a trip in and of itself but as a lunch-stop on a summer hillwalk (pack your rock shoes in your backpack!) it could be a fun addition to a day out.
|stunning couple of boulders. Totally isolated.|
