This North facing crag could be quite warm. The route ALLO, ALOE will enjoy morning shade in its right facing corner. There is still loads of potential for sport or trad lines.

Grade Route

This route climbs the obvious right facing break that forms a corner in the middle of the face. The opening party climbed it in two pitches of 25 metres each. From the top, walk 15m right to a good abseil tree. Abseil to ledge and another good tree will bring you back to the ground.
