Crag features

Brilliant bouldering crag famed for its traverses. More recently, ground developments have also made it a brilliant crag for bloc (straight up) problems too. Crag classics include: Big Marine, The Priory, Fertile Delta SDS, The Gauntlet, Ping, In Excess SDS and Grow Wings.

Topo available here:

The best bouldering place in the North West.

Very overhanging and therefore good in the rain and for getting pumped. Thuggish style of climbing with some technical moves. Some excellent bouldering and mediocre routes. Awesome for body wrecking traverses.
