Rockfax Description
The best lower-grade route in the quarry - sadly it is not THAT good. Climb the wide crack to ledges then the groove and arete on the left to the unstable summit rubble-field. Helmets advised! © Rockfax

Nice VD crack climbing in the lower section but the top section was a bit of a disapointment probably only 1 star. The top out was pretty dodgy due to the ridiculous amount of rubble/scree sitting at the top of the climb. Helmets definitely advised.

This climb is in definite need of some gardening! The initial crack was a bit harder than it looked. The final arete gives great views over the area. Deserving of its stars, if a bit green!

a nice long climb (for peak grit). The arete at the top wasn't easily protected due to my lack of cams, but the protection below was good so it would have just been a fun fall

this one played mind games with us both, after ian lowered off i tried ant the sheer heigh and loose roack was daunting, anchor at top looks like its going to fall off and make a mess of the belayers.

Easy, nice ledges everywhere. Horrible belay point: not much gear and very loose sloping rubble - watch out.

Managed to get my ropes wrapped around a large clump of heather growing off the ledge at half-height. Add to that the horrible, chossy top-out, and the heavens opening up on my second as she followed me up the route, and you'll forgive me for not agreeing with the number of stars this route gets in the guide book!

Scary top. To set up a belay you have to walk around the massive boulder at the top. Try not to knock scree down off the top, like me.
