Unwin Crag Guide

A Crag Guide gives an extensive view of all sub areas and climbs at a point in the index. It shows a snapshot of the index heirachy, up to 300 climbs (or areas) on a single web page. It shows selected comments climbers have made on a recently submitted ascent.

At a minor crag level this should be suitable for printing and taking with you on a climbing trip as an adjunct to your guidebook.

Cross fence from Unwin hut at the rear of the carpark. Follow vague track toward the cliff and cross barbed wire fence where PVC pipe has been placed to facilitate access.

Follow clearer tracks up a spur towards a large rock half way up the hill. Stay below the rock and traverse right crossing a gully until well right of the left sector and into clear patches of scrub. Then traverse back left to climbs or dodge your way on vague tracks around brambles to reach the right sector.
