Natural sandstone,bouldering. Mattresses allowed.


Some may remember this as a wet weather alternative to climbing at The Darren as a lot of the problems stay in the sun and stay dry in the drizzle.


Park at the junction of White Rock Avenue, cross the road and follow the path to the main crag. Or, park past the cattle grid onto the common and follow a path next to the houses and a acute left path at a cross roads to Laurel Buttress.
