Rocktype Grit (quarried)
Altitude 230m a.s.l
A minor quarry of local interest only. Routes up to 13m high with over half E1 or above, the rest mainly VS/HVS.
Many of the routes are overgrown with ferns and/or heather.
Some of the horizontal breaks have a lot of grit that washes into them after rain and may, therefore, need brushing.
|fingery climbing is the order of the day here, whilst the gear is good up to the halfway break it tends to get a bit more sparse above this. if you don't like crimpy holds then there are plenty of undercuts/sidepulls to make use of.
The Arete is worth calling in for if you're close by|
