Quarried and hence some loose rock around ledges: best to abseil from tree belays (plentiful). Single-pitch routes up to 36m, none very outstanding (and some utter rubbish to be avoided).

Access notes

It is now very overgrown and has and abundance of very loose rock. Looks to be a good venue if you'd like to clear each route before attempting it.

This could be a good venue, unfortunately its becoming somewhat overgrown. Lots of loose rock in places, particulalry at the top of the cliff. Still, some very good routes and well worth a visit if your in the area
