Hi Bruce, the guide has only been seen by a few people in the guidebook team (including me) so give the guy a break! The two lines he claims aren't actually in the guide, but have probably been done in the dim and distant past.

Sorry to spoil the show. This quarry has been climbed on for 70 years. The guide for it is written and shows nearly 30 climbs. Major cleaning was undertaken about 5/6 years ago by local climbers. I was there in about '69 and there were obvious climbs there then. Subsequent visits by various people brought it up to date. It was always a minor bouldering venue but that too was changing as more people visited. Sorry to say this but you have claimed something already in ,well founded, existence. I suggest that it be withdrawn. Contact me via this site for more info. Bruce Goodwin.

There has been rockfall at the left side of the quarry with the recent weather making topping out difficult on some routes. There is also some loose rock in places.
