Lovely crag for a sunny summers day - particularly Dental Slab in a warm breeze.

A beautiful setting and a good choice if you want to escape the crowds. A longish walk in and routes are generally short. However, has some classic routes including arguably the best value Diff on Gritstone (see guide).
