An good section of cliff-line that offers routes throughout the grades and some striking lines. The rock is generally good, but some of the routes can be a be touch dusty.
Approach - This wall is easily accessed by walking around the corner from Blacknor North. It can also be approached from the Blacknor South Quarry Approach.
