Yep, it's limestone, but not like any other I've ever seen. The rock faces are almost flawless with only small pockets as holds, occasionally there are cracks but these are few and far between.

And yes, we did climb them, although not the ones photographed here. I did a couple of the classic sport routes (Tales from the River Bank and On Some Faraway Beach; both fantastic) and then spent the rest of the day bouldering. It's a great place to visit, even if it's just for a walk; I can highly recommend it!

Cheers

When I first saw this place that's exactly what I thought too; one of the best places I've ever had the pleasure of climbing at.
