Two small pieces of excellent quality rock with a great set of lower-grade routes. These were bolted by Rich Mayfield of the Orange House, who was frustrated at the lack of decent lower-grade routes in the area that weren't glossed to a high sheen - good effort!

Tricky move before the ledge, then easier.

Vegetated low down, but worth doing for the top cracks.

Climb past the tree. Hard moves pass the steep wall near the top, which can be dirty.

Fantastic and sustained climbing until the steep bit where it becomes a jug-fest.

A tricky move by the third bolt, then sustained, don't be put off by the blunt arete - after a hard move it eases.

Be aware of the length. An exposed, but easy line up the arete on the right hand side of the crag.

Climb the wall to the ringing flake, where a tricky move gains jugs and easier ground to the finish.

A hard start leads to easier ground finishing up a wide chimney with some huge spooky flakes.

Steep at first, but really juggy as only limestone can be!
