A lovely little cliff in a sylvan and sunny setting by the River Bradford, just south of Alport. The crag gets plenty of sun, and is only a couple of minutes from the car, making it a great spot for a quick evening session. The climbing offers a contrast to the welcoming and friendly setting, being quite fierce and technical on sharp pockets, although the routes which follow cracks tend to be more amenable. There is also plenty here to interest boulderers especially on the compact lower wall. A few problems have been marked but the potential is vast with many eliminates and variations possible.

The polish on the lower holds is testament to its popularity many years ago although of late it has seen little traffic. If you do pop by then bring a rope and gear and tick Le Crepsule for starters and you won't be disappointed.
