A few good climbs with the top rope, not a great location as we had to park half a mile down the road. Lots of kids running around too which wasnt very good for the more serious climber.

Took a group of girl guides. The staff were brilliant, really encouraging and always safety conscious. The girls had a fab time and were suitably challenged.
