"There's not all that much to it ...though a couple of the climbs might be worth trying when bored" - Alex.

"The cliff is short (10m high), the rock is soft and greasy (mud stone) and the climbs were a bit hard to work out exactly what was what. ...The climbing could be OK but personally I thought the pub up the road was a better option" - Robin.
