Guidebooks

The belay stakes set a fairway back never seem to get a mention - no even in the guidebooks. Used the one for routes between Old Ash Crack and Patties Route. Think there may be others, but they are far back. Cracking crag btw.

Although short the routes pack in a punch and are mostly well protected. Came here instead of the usual Wanneys and was not disappointed, a good day was had.

"Although probably not worth the travel for experienced climbers." ...Except for the six E1s and two E2s of course! It's a great afternoon or evening out for E1/E2 teams.

I have been looking for some crags not to severe for my girlfriend to start off with and found a lovely little route here. Old ash crack is a 9m climb that is perfect for the beginner, text book placements and a nice solid confidence booster for anyone starting off. It also had some great Mid range climbs I realy enjoyed getting my tips onto myself. Although probably not worth the travel for experienced climbers.
