Description 

Mostly sport routes but with a few trad lines in there as well. Ranges from 10-20 m tall, routes from beginner to hard. Watch out for Poison Nettle!

Getting There 

Above Heathcote, access through Mt Pleasant Rd. Turn right on Longridge drive just before getting to the Summit Rd. Just as you curve around to the left the 2nd time after turning(about 300m after turn) you'll see a trail entrance. Park here, and hike down. You'll see the crags as you work your way left. Be sure to take the lower trail, as the uper one leads to Mt Pleasant crag.
