Nice crag by the lake. Mostly good rock. The routes are described from left to right, starting at the prominent east facing wall. This wall is shaded by early afternoon and there is a good swimming hole metres from the base of the crag.

  The line with chain link hangers, right of the broken corner with the beehive. If you don't mind the bees they don't mind you. The route climbs well and is a good introduction to the crag.

  A pleasant route that eases off near the top. Retro bolted to remove the ground fall potential.

  Left of the prominent arĂȘte. Start to the left of the ruins with a rising traverse past the first bolt (please do not start on the ruins). This line is sustained and it will keep you engaged all the way to the top.
