Composed of a very solid conglomerate the crag is suited to trad climbing. It is in a fine open setting and receives the sun till about 3pm in summer.
|Now well detailed in Highland Outcrops South and the grades and stars could do with updating to reflect that. A good and very accessible crag in a very mellow situation with plenty of short technical routes. Despite the odd bit of lichen most routes dry quickly (except FTC, Firecracker, Wooly Jumper, Black Adder and The Wall which can seep) and the crag can be climbable throughout the year.

|The crag is actually fairly quick drying except for The Wall and the top of Wooly Jumper.

|A handy roadside crag. Good, sound rock. The harder routes tend to take lines up clean rock. Unfortunately, not the case for most of the easier routes which have varying levels lichen, moss and dirt. Some of the lines take drainage from the hill above, and remain wet for a few days after heavy rainfall. Some of the belays take a little thought and searching for. If this crag were in a more populated area it would probably be very popular and kept clean by the number of climbers doing the routes.
