The rock varies in character from typically quarried on the lower tier through to more abrasive rock on the upper tier where blasting has uncovered large tracts of calcite-encrusted rock which almost feels like natural limestone. As with most quarries, extra vigilance needs to be exercised by both climber and belayer here given the blasting activity which has created potential for loose rock.

Don't swim in the bright blue toxic pool (as if you needed telling)!

βeta: I think there's something that's fallen off, there's a scar on the wall and it gets very hard (for 5a) about half the way up, ended up using the crack to the right.
