The popular area of the crag offers a limited number of fine routes throughout the grades. Top-outs are steep and a narrow path forms the walk off and requires care. There are a few belay stakes and some rock anchors, preinspection could benefit first time visitors. The Nab is popular with walkers and locals, care should be taken with bags and gear left at the base. The north face extends above the plantation and although suffering from lack of traffic, there are a number of worthwhile routes available to those prepared to seek them out.
