The first area you encounter on the footpath from the car park and the biggest crag in the area. The rock quality is also probably the best. A lot of the climbs (especially in the middle section) are steep, having to surpass a large bulge and/or roofs at the top. Routes at a more amenable angle can be found at either end.
Must-do routes are the HS (5.6) "Bard the Bowman", VS (5.7) "Gondolin", E1 (5.9) "Smaug The Dragon", E2 (mid 5.10) "The Goblin King" and E4 (mid 5.11) "The Wargs". Don't expect anything here to be a pushover at the grade, but they are generally well protected by nuts and threads.
