A very popular group and family site also soloing and bouldering. Belays at the top are sometimes difficult to arrange and friable so try and avoid the repetitive placing and removal of gear. Dogs should be kept under control at all tmes. May 07. Deliberate rock chipping in the quarry area. This has been reported to the ourselves. If you see anyone/group please get details of names/organisation/date and pass to BMC
