A Crag Guide gives an extensive view of all sub areas and climbs at a point in the index. It shows a snapshot of the index heirachy, up to 300 climbs (or areas) on a single web page. It shows selected comments climbers have made on a recently submitted ascent.

At a minor crag level this should be suitable for printing and taking with you on a climbing trip as an adjunct to your guidebook.

Mini crag with several short but fun sport routes good for beginner to intermediate climbers.

All routes are well protected with u-bolts (UBs in the descriptions). Climbs are listed left to right.

Approach:

Walk or drive about 200m down Green Lane, which turns off the main 'Brooyar' road between 'Green Lane' and 'Point Pure'. The crag is obvious just off the road up to the left. Take care not to block the road when parking.

Descent Notes:

All climbs have double bolt belays (DBBs in the descriptions) at the top for easy lowering / top belaying.
