50m up the valley from the dam is a buttress with a deep orange-colored scoop. Beware the brambles beneath.

Ethic inherited from Victoria Lines

As with most of Malta bolting is discouraged, a few exceptions are allowed

  1. As rap points, and

  2. where ground strikes are likely

but otherwise there are enough points to place gear
