Access issues

This crag is on Crown land.

Approach

Easy approach of 7 minutes. Follow the trail from the parking lot. At the fork, take the right hand path.

Just before descending to the main crag, you'll see The Moat - a large slab with a couple moderate bolted lines.

There is apparently a faint trail along the top of the crag to Wizards, Castle Breach, and Stoke-i-fy. The Watch Tower climbs are also TR accessible if you're willing to rap in off a tree.
