Sheltered

A great section of cliff for a clear winter's morning, or when a screaming westerly is blowing, or even on a hot summer afternoon. Most of the routes are sustained wall climbs.
Approach - The crag can be approached from either of the two parking spots. Head toward the Neddyfields Main Cliff, but double back down a steep slope which leads to the crag base. There is no restriction on this wall, but please only approach these routes from above when the restriction is on the rest of the crag - 1st March to 30th June.

The Pigskin Bus Pulls Into Tuna Town
It is worth persevering with the dirty start, since the rest of the pitch gives good flowstone climbing.

An impressive line up the steep orange scoop, gained by swinging right from the third bolt on Fireblade. Could be 8a.

Road Rage
A fine climb - one of the best on the east coast - that climbs the orange sheet of flowstone which is usually chalked up.

Hard and pumpy climbing up superb flowstone. High in the grade, especially for the short.

Illusions
Another fantastic stamina-test with a debilitating reach near the top - shorties beware.

The wall and V-groove on the far right-hand side of the face, starting as for Illusions then breaking right at its second bolt....

Climb up and slightly leftwards to side-pulls, then continue up the vague arete to a tricky finish.

The cracked flowstone arete gives pleasant juggy climbing - exposed and high in the grade.
