The only great climbing area in the Utsunomiya area. Often crowded on weekends. The shrine in the middle and the waterfall are simply magic. Kick in some yen to the gods and the local access/climbing group to safety and to say thanks. There are laminated maps at the bottom of each crag with route details!
The rock is chert. 87 routes in all. 21/5.9, 25/5.10s, 29/5.11s, 12/5.12s. Local campground is five minutes away (tel: 028-652-3450)
