The quarry has two contrasting walls - the less steep south wall which has some easier and mid-grade routes, although these are not strenuous or particularly technical, the lack of protection calls for a steady leader. The vertical east wall has a number of prominent horizontal breaks running across it. These breaks are linked by thin cracks and smooth walls that offer good climbing which can feel bold at times on the trad lines. A few of the lines have now been bolted.
Approach - A short walk up the slope from the parking.

Any Which Way
A mini-classic that climbs the line of thin rightward-leaning cracks up the tallest section of the wall. Good protection.
