"more pointless, loose, dirty overgrown climbs" Burbage, Millstone and Beyond (2005)
Alex Thompson - 15/Dec/09
There are a couple of decent boulders up the bank by roadside. Green and dirty, but interesting, occassionally loose. Didn't find access to main quarry area which might be fenced off as a scrap yard, and is guarded by a lethargic Alsatian.
