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.

Description:© (nmonteith)

A small overhung wall of grey smooth rock in a shady gully. Should contain 4 or 5 routes eventually. There are some spectacular orchids growing on the top of the wall - sadly there were probably a lot more like this closer to the carpark before thieves took them.

Approach:© (nmonteith)

The wall is located in the first possible walk down descent gully after Indian Head, about 100m past 'Black Snake Buttress'. It's 50m past a small creek and cascading waterfall. Walk down the easy angled gully for 20m then turn left to see the wall.

1 ** Big News Day

A little steep and a little pumpy. Stick clip first bolt, over bulge and up flake then punchy crux leaving the horizontal break. Traverse right from bolt 5 then back left and up to anchors.
