Crag features

Inland, offering remarkable flowstone formations despite having been quarried. Overhanging: a good wet weather venue. Gets the afternoon sun. Suffers from seepage in winter. Some routes on the RHS of the quarry need gear - either bring it or don't do them! Need up to 10 quickdraws.

Approach notes

From Newton Abbot, take the A381 S towards Totnes. After 3miles turn R to Ipplepen, follow signs for Torbryan. After 1mile the signs to Torbryan branch R; keep L until another road joins from the R at a tight corner. Park before the turning circle on the right. If busy use the car park up the road, Do NOT park in the turning circle

The quarry is 50m up a short track through a locked gate by the road.
