Getting weather forecast...
15-20 routes in an old granite quarry. One or two bolted routes. There are some routes that could take gear, but it's not recommended. January saw a snowstorm in which the melting then freezing caused a huge flake to break off the crag. If thawing and freezing can cause this, so can expansion of camming devices. But it's up to you. Most routes between 30 and 40 ft. Some of the top anchors are sketchy to get to, a rappel is recommended to set them up.
From the interstate take the Fifth Street exit. Follow Fifth until it ends. This will put you on Tredegar Street. Take a right on Tredegar. Park in the lot that's under the railway bridge. Take a foot bridge to Belle Isle. Take the trail on the northern end of the island until you see the quarry on your left. Approach time 15 minutes.
