A good compact buttress with some very worthwhile sport lines in the mid grades. Keep a low profile and do not approach over the farmland above the cliff. The face is sheltered by trees. It seeps in winter.
Approach (also see page 156) - From the parking, go through the left-hand gate and follow the path past some wooden structures and up to the left of a steep scree slope. Continue steeply up around the rim of the quarry to below the buttress.
a Access - No climbing 1 March to 15 July because of nesting birds.

The flaky wall and bulging upper rib left of the long shallow corner of The Reply. Pleasantly technical and sustained.

The steep central line of overhangs is a fine but hard-won sport pitch on superb rock.
