Altitude 18m a.s.l
The Gogarth experience distilled down into smaller, easily digestible portions. A peaceful and very easily accessible area offering a huge variety of short but adventurous single pitch routes from easy slabs to steep caves, with a particularly wide selection of easier routes (a good alternative to Gogarth) as well as some exciting testpieces. Many routes are non-tidal and face a variety of directions, but a sunny and scenic outlook is generally guaranteed.
Park at The Range carpark and follow the guidebook to the crag of your choice, usually 5-10 mins flat stroll.
