A fairly unremarkable Sector (despite its popularity with local school groups) that is not in the current local guidebook. On the plus side it is in a sunny setting and is only a few minutes from the car. There are a dozen or so routes here, rising from a constructed platform. The nameplates at the base have mostly been stripped so telling which route is which is rather tricky. The names used here are probably not correct; any feedback would be gratefully received. The routes on the upper wall are very close together, just a selection is listed here. Guidebook page 209.
