Very good effort climbing something here. When I went it all looked a bit hideous. I tried to scramble around to abseil down to do some cleaning, trod in a bees nest, got stung repeatedly until I felt sick, and then punched myself in the bollox whilst swatting them away from my legs. It wasn't the best climbing day ever.
How are the routes and grades and stuff??

They are now bolted with lower-offs to increase traffic and so you don't have to top out onto the golf course. I don't really climb that hard so only done a few of the easier lines, but they are great! Definately worth another look now

Ah, seems like a good candidate for bolting in the area. I assume places like The Brand, Pocket Gate Quarry, Outwoods, Forest Rock, and the one by the reservoir are still trad?? Are there any details online of the new Hangingstone stuff??

Yes the other crags are all still trad but climbing at Pocketgate is strictly banned due to the rare precambrian fossils found there. No details of the new Hangingstone stuff yet we have to wait for the new guide!

Fiend, all the info will be in the new guide.
