The left side of this area provides a few superbly sustained and enjoyable pitches but the rock needs care in places. To the right is a tall white wall and some large overhangs that have a handful of harder lines. A yew tree at the base of the wall is just left of the start of Manikins of Horror. The area is to the left of a large tree 10m up the cliff under large overhangs.
