Climbs 60 – Rocktype Basalt – Altitude 306m a.s.l – Faces all

Crag features
An old basalt quarry with routes of all grades.

A mix of trad and sport climbing. The trad is generally on the easier crack lines whilst the majority of the sport routes are on the harder face climbs. Many of the harder (and some of the easier) crack lines are also bolted and routes are generally safe if it is not possible to place protection. Almost all lines have bolted lower-offs as the majority of the climbs have loose top-outs. If a lower-off is in place, it is mandatory to use it.

The routes are a maximum of 15m but generally around 10m. The climbing is of a style of straight up cracks or thin and fingery face climbs.
