CHEYNE CLIFF


The main section is a superb wall, covered in fantastic flowstone and orange coral sheets. The harder routes have been used for training purposes and many variations have been done over time. There has been a large rockfall at the southern end in recent times that has destroyed the starts of three lines recorded in previous guidebooks.
