Note from Dad : this is not only a good walk but a famous climbing area for bouldering this has a V15(the difficulty of a boulder problem is described by the American ‘V’ grade system that runs fromV0- to V15)

description of a climb called Walk Away V15 – (sit start)  The middle of the wall is utterly desperate by the way !!! in fact the sit start is pretty grim 😉

looking up the fairy steps

if you want to see the fairies you are supposed to fit through this without touching the sides but it is too narrow for dad !!
