About South Quarry:

The only section of the crags you can legally climb on. Catches the late sun nicely and can get busy. Dont bother bringing a rope, since theres no top anchors, and the pro is rubbish. Local style is solos and bouldering. If soloing, be aware that the top 6ft is a little loose and holds have been known to pull.
Approach: Walk up the wide footpath from the south until you see the deep recess on your right with the notice about the perils of climbing..
Approach Time: 5 mins
Latitude, Longitude:
Access Issues: Strictly you need a permit from the park polis. In effect, you very rarely get challenged, especially in the early evening.
Rock Type: Volcanic
Type of Climbing: Trad
Sun Aspect: Afternoon Sun
