Overhanging Wall >>
[Quarry Wall, Causey Quarry, 3 kb]Follow the wide crack through bulges to a ledge on the left. Continue up a pocketed crack then step right for a steep finish through the juggy bulges. © ROCKFAX
Start to the left of overhanging wall, follow the crack through the overhang with some difficulty (possible to place mid size nut above the overhang to protect). Follow the obvious crack in the wall past the square pocket then onto good holds to finish.

Soft for VS, but overhang move is hard for 4c - feels more like a HS 5a type route - a hard but very well protected pull move near the ground, followed by a well protected and easy continuation, up the quarried wall and bulges.
