Crag features

Five minutes' walk (if that) from the road. Many pleasant slab routes at E2-E4, with sparse bolts (4 bolts in 25m). Also some worrying lower-grade trad routes: rock and finishes may be loose or fragile.

Approach notes

Mind the fence after parking on the roundabout. Looks like a recent rock fall has happened to the left of fools gold October 6th 2019

Recent significant Rockfall Oct 2020 between Mudslide and WhizBang.   Possible loose rock remains dubiously suspended above and left of whiz bang.

Restricted Access

Please avoid damaging fences - use the stiles provided. Historically there were access problems here, partially as a result of liability concerns and also due to damage to fences, but these appear to be resolved at this time.

March 2021

There are reports of further and more significant rockfalls here in addtions to the ones mentioned below - possibly affecting the classic route Fools Gold. Take care as further rockfalls are highly likley! 

A report of a significant rockfall in May 2020 suggests the routes Guillotine and Wusty Woof. may have been affected..

A large block has fallen off the route Septugenarian in early 2017 making this route very unstable and dangerous - further rock-fall may occur here!
