Crag features

Small quarry. Protection poor to non-existing. Rock generally loose and unsound. Only for the bold.

Not a great crag, but there are quite a few solid well protected routes.

The ground is currently about 4 feet higher than it was when most of the routes were put up.

There have been new sport routes added recently (2014). Topo is available

Approach notes

Park at Sea Walls and walk south along the A4.
