The Second Lift
|Although only a small crag, this offers plenty of fun climbing with sunshine in the evening and an open aspect. It takes no seepage, is a good hot weather alternative but nothing to shout about. The best approach is from the Third Lift by following a vague path down the right-hand side of the cliff, facing out, and then contouring back to the left. It can also be approached from the opposite end of the cliff but this is much more awkward.|
