Sector B

Marcin Ostzas and myself did some climbs here in July 2009. Looking up from the valley there are 3 climbable looking sections. The centre one B appears to be the cleanest and the photos below show some routes on it. It is about 15-17m high at the highest point and slabby granite with good protection. Friction is excellent.

Sector C

To the right of Sector B there is another clean piece of rock, probably 15-20m high. The rock here is more brittle and protection poor. we did one route here

Sector D

Further down the hill there is another clean steep area. This is probably where Maneater is. Otherwise it is between 4 and 5 on Sector B

Maneater 20m VS 4b Joe Lyons, Dermot Wall, 2002 The wide chimney on the right of the crag is reached by climbing easily up the blocks at its base.

Bridge up between the walls, keeping out to pass the overhang at the top.

Sector A

to the north of sector B a lovely bit of rock is found. RTENOTITLE

only one climb has been made known to me in this area, it is at the left of the above photo, starting below a boulder sitting on top in a slanting crack. I believe it was first done by Orla Prendergast. It was definitely done on 18th April 2010, by Theo Mooney, Ka Yuen, 2010.
