Hidden away under the west end of the quarry are two very eerie caves containing layers of tiered roofs. The rock is good with dramatic mega-steep pump-outs which are far more rewarding than the average clip-up in the quarry above, if you are up to them. This is also a great swimming and jumping spot for the hot summer days. Some of the routes here have been soloed, however most can not be considered as deep water solos. Guidebook page 304.
