This is a working photo, for people who are going in to new route.. following on from the Midlands Area Meeting so any new routes should be sent to me so I can keep this topo upto date. I am not going to post route grades names etc, if you want info, email me. There is maps and information in my facebook profile.

This is NOT the Cambusbarron West Face Quarry, no idea why that has come up, also, it is not in any current guidebook.

Errrr, WHY aren't you posting route grades names etc?? Surely it would be more informative to do so??

Alot of the route grades have not been confirmed, easier for us to monitor who is going in and doing what if people are contacting me direct and it was decided it was not in the best interests to post a full topo with all the info on it... are you planning to get in?

Fiend. The topo that Iain has posted clearly shows the routes that have already been done in the quarry. This is all that he intended to do so that people need not waste any time attempting routes that they thought were new lines only to find out that they have already been done. Errrr.

Best interests of whom??

if you want to do the routes go there and do them and let us know the grades, it has been put on so that the people who are doing the new routes are not wasting their time doing what they think is a new route when it is not... it is not a topo with grades... or route names... that will be in the guidebook

There has been no problem to date, the map etc is in my facebook profile. At no point do you have to jump over any fence etc to get in, just follow the path in fb.
