Summary

Urban basalt quarry climbing beside a small lake.

Description

Mostly sport, a bit of trad, and some dry-tooling routes.

Access issues

Drive through the Stonefields housing estate, park on the road at the pumphouse by the lake. Don't block the pumphouse gate, park further up the road. You are in a residential area, lay off the swearing and other antisocial behaviour.

Approach

Walk around behnd the pumphouse for the first few routes. Continue down beside the cliff to the back of the lake for the rest. Watch out for broken bottles in the rocky descent.

History

A few routes were developed in 2009, then the area mostly languished until early 2016, when a lot of cleaning and bolting was done.
