Winspit West is the least attractive of the quarries, and is characterised by some impressive man-made caves and a good number of square-cut overhangs. Much of the rock should be treated with care.
Approach - On entering the quarry, head rightwards towards some old buildings at the foot of the wall. The first routes are reached via an arch (see topo).
