This area can be seen from a distance above the old water tanks on the hillside. It is on your right hand side as you drive down the main road just before you reach the dam.

The area is pretty vegetated, so bring a tarp or rope bag and expect some dirt. The berries in the bushes should be sufficient reward! The views of the valley and reservoir are also fantastic.

The Quarry offers some quality one-pitch climbs with a wild feel.

Getting There 

Take the main road to the dam. Just before the end, before you reach the dam, you will see a row of three similar houses with blue-green roofs on your right. Park your car and take the dirt driveway that leads right, near a corner with two big trees, before the three houses. Follow this up as it curves around. Eventually you will reach a green gate that you need to jump. Curve up and right after the gate and you will reach the crag.
