Cool introduction to Montagu with easy access. Great way to squeeze a climb or 2 in when arriving/ leaving.


Fantastic beginner crag, with a few moderate routes to keep everyone happy. 2 minute walk from the carpark, grassy flat base, and safe bolting. This is as pleasant and accessible as cragging gets.
