Tucked away in a cul-de-sac, this area is easy to miss. The route Patellaectomy is a must for total slate madness. There are also some sport routes in the area. Follow the main access track through the upper quarries until the bottom of a dip by Dali's Hole. Cross the gate on the right of the track and follow a path along a flat level into a secluded bay.
