The rightmost section of Wintour's Leap. Route lengths range from about 30-60m and are often split into two pitches by a half height terrace. The rock is often broken and routes are indistinct in the lower half, but the upper half is perfect! A good mix of grades, mostly from VS to E2 (5.7-mid 5.10), classics include Freedom (VS 4c), Firefly (E2 5c) and La Folie (E4 6a).

Getting There 

Take the descent through Woodcroft quarry, but take a path branching off to the left as soon as possible. This path runs along the base of the cliff to all routes.
