This is wonderful grippy rock, with really long routes, 29 meters, 31 meters, etc. We tied a figure 8 knot at the end of our 60 M rope for safety. It is best to allow a couple of days after rain as the rain seeps through and follows some of the cracks that the routes are on.
As noted, it is still under development and we did knock a few rocks loose. Belayers should wear a helmet and be observant at all times.
This is an excellent place to climb, cleared nicely, nice belay stations. We look forward to coming back. Oct 4, 2014
