History has it the former landowner's gamekeeper would grease the holds on this rock to keep climbers off.

There is an old rusty raiing on the NW corner of this block to descend rather than rapping off the tree or the old manky eyebolt. Great area, not too sure about trespassing as we hopped a fence to get there but we had no problems.
