Bouldering in the evening © Paul Tanner

Crag features

A short limestone crag secluded in trees. It offers mainly bouldering on excellent compact limestone, ranging from easier problems right of the 'Well', to modern roof desperates on the left. Trad. routes are all solos and extended problems.

Suffers badly from seepage, best visited in summer.
