Uriah Heep has immaculate rock, is slightly over hanging and pumpy as hell. The base requires a small scramble to get up to and is not child friendly. In 2009, Andy Davies improved the base of the crag by bolting some poles onto the rock. Uriah Heep has been said to be a Mt Arapiles look-a-like crag.
