Castle Upon Alun Quarry

Here I am on the third wall at Castle Upon Alun Quarry, a route called  Licence to Drill – Fr. 6c++  (from the log book) Climb easily up the slabs, just right of the corner, passing a mesmerizing geode enroute. A tricky sequence on the headwall accesses the cliff top and a pleasant exit. Shared belay to the right.

Well, I didn’t pass the blooming geode, but didn’t read the logbook before going to the Quarry, we popped in on the way to Box Bay you see to have a look and ended up trying a few routes. Looks like a lovely place to go when the sun is out, a short walk in of 15 minutes or so, meaning we’ll be going back there again.
