Description

A series of crags next to a river. Depending on river levels you might need to abseil down to get to some of the climbs.

Access issues inherited from Kiserian Gorge

Approach

There's a barbed wire fence between the cliff (which is on the north side of the river) and the road which makes access complicated. The only way we found to access was to descend somewhere around Rolf's place (either about 50 meters further than Rolf's place where there's a trail that gets down the rive) or next to the bridge (tricky and bushy) and then walk up the river. Previous access was to descend the tricky 'Easy Way Down' or abseil 'Stingo' from the big fig tree.
