The quarry continues rightwards from Gingerbread Slab but its quality deteriorates rapidly and the trees have reclaimed most of the rock. One section which is worth a visit is a wall rising above a band of sandy red rock and with an arrow-straight corner-crack to its right. The rock on this wall is often sandy, especially after rain.
