Sheltered

The Quarryman's Wall is the most popular section of cliff at Winspit, and, being set well back from the sea and extremely sheltered from the wind, it makes for a very reliable venue. The rock is good and the majority of the routes are clean and well bolted. The climbs furthest inland are steep, whilst the rest are vertical. This is an excellent place for teams of mixed abilities, and a good venue when sea conditions prevent access elsewhere. Guidebook page 279.

A relatively easy lower wall and flake lead to a hands-off rest. The next move is the crux and is very reach dependent.

The line just left of the arete is an eliminate, and it is easy to drift off the line.

Classy climbing with a definite crux section. Reaching the lower-off is a touch bold.
