Crag features

An excellent sandstone/conglomerate crag in a sunny south facing position. The majority of the routes are quick to dry. Up to 15m high. Vertical face climbing at the right end and roofs at the left culminating in the spectacular Dirty Harrys Cave.

Dirty Harry's cave can provide a number of complex link ups. These can be found in the link up section of Dirty Harrys Cave.
Golden Fleece and the current “King” of Robs “Let the right one in” have been recorded as good examples of what can be done here.

There is a lot of uncertainty over the rock on "The Pen” area at the moment.

Please climb there with caution.

Restricted Access

The crag is off limits from September 1st to end of October each year as the farmer keeps deer there and they are very aggresive during the rutting season. PLEASE do not break this ban as access is delicate, go somewhere else instead.

IMPORTANT: Parking is limited and cars must not be parked in the "turning circle"

This is needed for long farm vehicles to negotiate the hairpin and is not a car park.

Anyone ignoring this please don't be surprised if you return to your car and find either damage to your vehicle or a very irate farmer waiting on you.

A great crag and well bolted, The sandstone is solid but the conglomerate needs careful handling on some of the routes quite hollow in places. A great workout can be had I am throughly satisfied after my first visit. Cheers to Ken and Neil and anyone else invloved in the development of the place.
