The Steeple


One of the most popular crags in Montagu. Excellent easy to moderate long routes on the slabby side and some good harder routes on the steep side. Lovely grassy base, perfect for kids and picnics. Can get crowded on weekend summer afternoons.

Approach

From the yellow markings at the convergence of the two paths, just stay on the main path along the riverbank and you will reach The Steeple.
