Routes here are up to 35 metres long and the quality of the climbing is clearly imported from another solar system, several 5-star routes including arguably the best 19, best 22, 23 and 26 at Boven!. Long routes will sometimes have chains halfway up so that you can lower off twice to get down. There is plenty of potential for new lines at the right end of the crag, just be sure it‟s not one of the existing trad climbs.

The best is to park as for ACRA then access as for the WB wall, then abseil (or scramble) down the WB gulley. At the base of the gulley, walk along the path along the base of the cliffs until you see the climbs. To exit, either scramble back up the gulley, or 101 walk approx 200 metres along the base of the crag until you reach the railway and you will arrive at the top of the WB gully. Walk back through tunnel, if a train comes, press yourself to one side (apparently safe but absolutely terrifying).
