Steep bulging starts and thin technical upper walls typify the style of climbing here. Some of the undercutting is rather brutal, although thankfully fairly brief. The left side is a steep wall of good rock with a well-defined corner on its right. The trad lines are well worth checking out. The right-hand side offers routes with powerful low overhangs and then more technical and fingery upper walls. This area tends to be more sheltered if a wind is blowing.
