Description

This is the closest area to the carpark, and the routes are some of the longest, however it does suffer a little from loose rock.

Do not climb in this area between June and December as the resident Peregrine Falcon breeds here during this period.

Approach

Follow the walking track for 60m and turn off to the R. Walk downhill for about 50m and then head to the R. This will put you at the top of the cliff.

Descent notes

Walk down to the south or abseil down Valley Wall and walk to the bottom of this wall.
