Friable cliff band with a purple hue. Huge potential for those willing to do some cleaning.

Comparatively speaking, the yellowish rock on the right side of the cliff band is of a less friable nature.

Good to know you're still at work ferreting out the chossiest climbable rock in the Dgo area. I would love to hear if anyone actually repeats this. BTW, Julia's Outcrop in b'ham is quite good.
