The main section of Stoney West offers several walls split by cracks and ivy. The routes on the right-hand side tend to be popular. In the centre is a smart wall with some good quality rock, further right is a shorter wall with a few technical climbs that haven't yet proved very popular.
Approach - This is the first area you reach on the approach, which arrives by the wide chimney of Cave Crack.
