Nesscliffe - The Terrace

About
A concentrated selection of hard problems with some of the best views on offer.
Directions
From the car park enter the woods and turn right and follow the main path until you reach the stairs. From the top of the stairs follow the track on your left up the hillside. When you reach the bold arete of Open Air (E3) continue straight, passing all the Kynastons cave areas, to a stone staircase. At the top of the stairs where they join the path, head right for a short distance until a tunnel through the bushes takes you to the Terrace.
