Discontinuous routes, vegetated and easy, but the situation makes up for this. Probably best kept as a close-to-home winter crag. Non-specific routes, suited for soloing and estimated at around grade II. Good fun to muck about on in the evening and get used to winter gear.
Two main ways in. From the east - parking at the Hillend Ski Slope, where the chairlift could be used to take out some of the approach. Or, west -from Swanston (leaving from Pentlands park car-park next to golf-course) and walk up past the historic thatched village on main path up to ridge. A low path across the base of the craig runs horizontally between these two ways up. Alternatively walk in from Bonaly or even over the hill from Balerno way.
