The most impressive part of the quarry with a series of superb lines. From the old classic of Crewcut, through to the intense outings of Green Death and Edge Lane, and onto the fantastic line of The Master's Edge, there are routes here to inspire all. The rock gets afternoon sun and dries quickly, though it can be green in winter.

The grassy right-trending crack leads to ledges. From the highest of these head out to the arete for an airy finish.

Under Doctor's Orders
Follow the seam in the arete right of Crewcut (old peg) until it is possible to mantel out right, then reach the mid-way ledge.

Weird and wonderful bridging up the blank corner. Shorties will have to shuffle, feet on one wall, hands on the other!

The wall up and right of the runners on The Master's Edge gives a sustained, technical and deadly serious pitch.
