About Ura-rocko Eboshi-iwa:

Well bolted sports-climbing crag with 2 walls, both within single-pitch length. Around 50 routes are draped across the volcanic rock remains of a long abandoned quarry and range from a couple of slab routes at 5.8 through to some 5.12a face climbs with one or two short overhanging sections, but most routes are around 5.10. The crag has a long history and sees a lot of traffic throughout the year, though summer can be oppresively hot. Most of the top anchors have been recently replaced with proper rappel anchors with chains and quite a few of the older bolts have recently been replaced with new Petzl bati'nox and collinox resin anchors. There are a couple of trad routes for those so inclined, and a couple of tempting cracks for anyone wanting to practise their aid skills. Not much in the way of bouldering action.
