This crag is on the most southerly part of the main mountain. Park off the road at least 100 m before the chalet and then walk diagonally left up the slope to the crag. The paths that once existed are mainly overgrown. There are currently three routes on the crag which all start at the same point. The routes separate at an obvious ledge about 8m above the ground. Beware of possible loose rock.
