/ sport climbing Lancashire or close by to Accrington
Just wondered if there is any sport climbing close to Accrington Lancashire.
How close do you need? Yorkshire is an hour away and has two of the best sport climbing crags in the country*
Yeah i know of those , just wondered if there were any closer to me .
The only sport I'm aware of in Lancashire is at Warton Quarry, but it's probably crap.
There's Chapel Head Scar, but that's probably further than Yorkshire for you (?). Surely you can be in settle in less than an hour?
Ultimately though, I think bouldering is probably a better option in these parts.

Don't forget Barrow Scout Cove! (though it's even crapper)
However, there are restrictions due to some old people it seems: https://www.thebmc.co.uk/modules/RAD/ViewCrag.aspx?id=990
