Pulling the crux moves on the FA of Sirocco.
The main wall is the tall face at the center of the crag as you approach from below. The wall is composed of slabs at the base with steeper sections and overlaps above the slabs and a vertical head wall.
All the climbs feature excellent solid granite, and since it sits high above the steep slopes below the exposure when climbing feels more that it should.
The wall sits between two wide steep gullies.
All the climbs require a 60m rope.
As you walk up the drainage continue up to the base of the crag and move up leftwards to reach the base of the slab. The climbs start here and move leftwards.
Climbing Season For the Horseshoe Piles area.
Weather station 4.5 miles from here

None of the anchors are easily accessible from above. The best way to access the anchors is by climbing the routes!
