Vegetation and lots of it. All of the routes need substantial cleaning (read bulldozer and flamethrower), many just to reach the start. A lot of the rock is suspect and as such the only reliable runners are trees, of which there are many. Having said that some of the routes are actually worth climbing such as the 'classic of the crag' 1847 (HS 4b). Good Luck!
|Back in around 1968 a young fresh faced youth and friend Al Evans came to chat to my climbing partner Kieth Myhill and I - he had found a new crag, no routes on out at all. So Al, Kieth and I would go out after work to this scruffy crag and clean and put up routes. Kieth took a fall of there route just left of a water course. We did Bovril, Marmite and quite a few other. Yes, I agree, not a wonderful crag to climb on. But it was fun.

|Hate to nit pick, but i believe the "crag features" section needs correcting (the route is called "1847" not "1947"
