Crag features

It is not used in many years propertly! The rocks are dangerously loose, wet and vegetated. A 1m x 0.4 m slab slid off when I climbed it, luckily it did not land on me on the belayer!

Access Advice

It is very vegetated around the wall, brambles everywhere. Top is slippy. Climbing not recommended here.

Overgrown with brambles at the base, but good blackberries. Not climbed often.
