In spite of a pleasant outlook, quality climbing on solid rock and stainless-steel bolts, The Gallery retains an impressively austere air that will not appeal to the timid. The rock is an unusual form of micro-diorite which offers few incuts or jugs but instead a profusion of large slopers, sidepulls and undercuts. Many of the climbs cover steep ground, but the moves will feel a lot less strenuous for the inventive and technically adept. The routes are often long, some requiring a 60m rope to lower off from.
The main crag faces northwest and gets the sun from early evening in summer. It is an exposed spot and can be extremely windy. The routes are quick to dry and there is not much seepage.
Park in the large layby on the left before the tunnel entrance. Cross the road and follow the cycleway around to the crag in 5 mins.
