Access notes
Take a left off West Malvern road, heading south. The turnoff is a wide road just by the main school building. Follow the road up to a pathway which leads into to open land, the quarry is unmissable. Anchor pionts are apparently present on top of the crag and access to these is a bit of a scramble. Trees are also present slightly higher where anchors can be made.

climbed recently brilliant day out for more of the novice climbers, good trees at top for anchors, most of the brambles gone now and even 1 tree trimmed from the right hand side of the rock.

Tried out this crag earlier today and was pleasantly surprised (just remember to turn right when the path splits and go past the house - we didn't!!). Good grippy rock but protection is severely lacking and leading here would be very bold!!. All it needs is someone to get rid of some of the brambles on the right hand side of the crag to make access to the climbs there easier.

We climbed here and we really enjoyed the two climbs we managed to get in before it started to rain. So we will be back at some pint.
