The first wall you see when you get to the crag, with the largest concentration of climbs. Split into two main sections. Climbs on the lower tier start 2m from the edge of the river and are generally harder (grade 23 and up). To get to the upper tier walk up a short dirt track on your right. From here the base of all the climbs can be accessed, although some of them require you to clip into a fixed chain. The climbs on the upper tier are generally easier from grade 17-23.

Getting There 

The first wall you see directly in front of you as you approach the crag. The lower tier is accessible straight from the riverbank. For the upper tier head up a short track on your right.
