Looking up the Nose section at Dairy Farm Quarry


This area is perhaps the most obvious formation on the right (East) side of the Diary Farm climbing area and is tall enough for two pitch routes. Per it's namesake, it resembles a nose with a roof about 15ft from the ground. Most of the climbing is trad with supplimental bolts. Be careful of the rock at the bottom as it can be wet and/or loose.

There are more climbs on either side of the Nose itself in the "Nose Left" and Nose Right" Areas. Climbs on the Nose from left to right are:

Mega Hangdogging - 5.12
First Blood (Original) - 5.8
First Blood: p1 - 5.10b, p2 - 5.8
Directuss - 5.11?
The Nose Ramp: p1 - 5.7, p2 - 5.8

Getting There 

Same approach as the other areas for the Dairy Farm. When you reach the clearing you will see the Nose on the right side of the quarry near some tall trees.
