Short well featured sandstone routes, mostly on machine bolts. Easy to set up top ropes. About 30 routes
The small crag above the Lara St boulders. Follow the track straight up hill from the Cranberry boulder, a large boulder with ironstone swirls just to the left of the track. You walk over the top of Slab World which is down to the left. You meet the main crag at a small cave, which is at the left hand end of the crag. The track continues through a corridor between a large boulder with routes on it to the left, and some easy routes on the right. Instead contour right at base of cliff which is a series of stepped faces and arêtes, and includes three large eroded overhangs. Routes are described left to right, with gaps on walls not yet climbed. The crag ends just above Star boulder. There are several projects on ring bolts indicated with a tag on the first bolt. There are a number of U bolts and the odd hex bolt scattered across the top of the crag. The top is easily accessed from either end or via scrambles between overhangs.
Best to abseil down and clean routes, especially if you want to top out, as the cliff top is covered in she oak needles. The hex heads are quite fiddly to get hangers over sometimes.
Most routes were put up between 1995-2000 by David Forbes with some routes added by Richard Jeffrey and Paul Rivière.if there is knowledge of original names of climbs please change.
