Nice day for flow stone. © samparsons

Crag features

An unusual venue made up of a long low quarried wall that for much of its length is set in a slight trench. There are plenty of routes here and although on initial appearance seem to be very short, are actually mostly of good rock, powerful and not a pushover. Some of the flowstone climbing is well-worth tracking down and the whole crag is extremely sheltered and close to the parking - just don't mistake the short length of the routes as easy pickings!

Approach notes

Park at the Cheyne Weares car park and then walk south (right when looking out to sea) on a path to the edge of the quarry from where the path continues down a short way to the quarry floor and the crag.
