Restricted Access

The landowner has recently informed the BMC and climbers on site that he does not allow climbing in the quarry. Several unsucessful attempts have been made meet with the landowner, but no response has been forthcoming so far. Anyone climbing the the quarry may asked to leave - if this happens, please do so politely.

Recently fully bolted and extended to the top of the wall since publication of the latest Lower Wye Valley Guide.

A hard start (past 4 bolts) leads to a rest under the obvious roof. With a powerful reach, grasp the first of a series of finger-jams that lead tenuously up the crack to a welcome rest. Move rightwards out of groove and climb the superb headwall on pockets to the BB.
