The left-hand side of this quarry has a short wall of decent rock that faces south and has a grassy base. Further right, past a tall loose tower is another area of good rock with a small collection of tiny routes.

Summary
Zigzag up the next crack-line, an awkward little number.
 HVS
4
Seconds
Jam the crack to its end at the sloping break, then swing left to access the continuation and jam on.
 VS
5
Parallax
Climb the left-hand side of the blunt arete. A runner on the right is a good idea and should really be placed on the lead.
 E3
6
Sticky Fingers
The left-hand of a pair of cracks is of an awkward width, offering well-protected exercise. Easier for the small-handed.
 E1
7
Widfa
The right-hand crack is easier though it widens awkwardly with height. Exit left above the useful chockstone on good jams.
 HVS
8
Sunstroke
Climb the arete of the groove throughout, with a tricky initial mantelshelf. The groove can be bouldered direct at 6a.

The narrow wall is eliminatish but worthwhile and the landing is good. A somewhat blinkered approach is best to appreciate it...

Puffin
Follow the groove with a useful crack in its left wall to the edge of the hanging slab and pull over the roof to finish.

Delicate Wall
Climb the slab leftwards to the arete and a finish over the roof as for Puffin without panting.

White Honkey
Climb the slab then head for the edge of the roof. Above escape or cross easy ground to thin cracks in the final wall.
