Approach

As for the Foundry, keep walking along the cliff top. A huge block can be seen hanging over a steep clean face past the overhanging crags of the Foundry and Acid House. The route NEW AGE is situated on this face. One can abseil in from anchors on the block or walk about 15m past to a scramble path to reach the base. The trail walks back to the base of the crag and eventually reaches the Acid house 130m along.
