The Go With the Flow section of cliff has some good flowstone. The right-hand side of the wall - The Niagra Area - is defined by a water-stained long dark streak which is often wet and is generally only dry in the summer months.
Approach - From the car park, walk to the cliff-top path and walk right for 80m. Scramble down into a quarry, walk through a large block wall and then down a narrow gully at the far end of the quarry (rope sometimes in place). This gully emerges below the Medusa Falls Area on Blacknor South. Blacknor Central is accessed by a small track that contours underneath the crags eventually joining up with the path beneath Blacknor North.

Blame it on the Drain
A tricky number, breaking left out of Niagara Wall at its second bolt via some pockets and flowstone to a final bulge.

Niagara Wall
Climb from the right-hand side of the belay ledge up slabby rock past an amazing welded boulder. Finish up a flake.

Dizzy up the Girl
Break left out of Gaze of the Gorgon, on pockets, and fire up the groove on good clean rock.

Gaze of the Gorgon
A major crack-line that is both strenuous and sustained.

The large chimney in the corner is an intimidating trad line.
