This is a small dolerite quarry on the North Side of the Forth Road Bridge. The quarry has a sunny aspect, which means it drys quickly.

The feel is definitely urban with lots of graffiti on the rock.

Belay anchors are often driven angle iron (bed frame) stakes.

Getting There 

Driving North on the M90 take the first exit after the Road Bridge, and park soon after the junction on Admiralty Road. The quarry lies up the short bushy slope South East of the junction.
