A pleasant buttress with some mild offerings which are suitable for those who find the scale of the main quarry a bit intimidating - it is always popular.

On the left a pair of converging cracks and their continuation give pleasant and well-protected jamming.

The left-hand groove is the best route here and a sample of what the rest of the quarry offers. Bridge and jam to the ledge.

The angular arete just right is bold and reachy. Side-runners lower the grade.

The central groove is pleasantly mild. Another good introduction to the rock and the style of climbing at Millstone.

Blood and Guts on Botty Street
An extended boulder problem up the right-hand arete of the buttress is unprotected and precarious. Often done above mats.
