Hangingstone Quarry

Leicestershire, ENGLAND

Climbs 15 – Rocktype Slate – Altitude ? – Faces E

Crag features
Steep smooth slate mostly up groove lines though harder wall climbs on the back wall. Once bold local test pieces are now bolted with lower offs to increase traffic and keep the rock clean. There is a golf course behind the crag so don't top out else this may annoy golfers and cause problems with access.

Access notes
Look in lecistershire climbs: http://www.leicesterclimbs.f9.co.uk/hangingstoneI.htm. this details access.

PLEASE NOTE ROUTE 5, HELLOVERHANG. THIS MENTIONS ROCK FALL. I WAS THERE LAST WEEKEND (23/05/09) AND HAD A VERY LUCKY ESCAPE WITH A FRIEND WHO WAS SLIGHTLY INJURED BY A LARGE BLOCK WHICH CAME AWAY AS HE PULLED UP ON IT. LUCKILY ONLY HIS HAND WAS INJURED COULD HAVE BEEN MUCH WORSE. BE VERY CAREFUL IN THIS AREA AND VIGILANT IF YOU ARE DOWNHILL FROM THIS CLIMB.

Nice secluded area but it can be overgrown so take a pair of shears! Some of the slate was pretty loose on a few climbs but generally most of the holds were pretty stable.

Its just confusing as the above tick list does not correspond with the topo.

The new route is pretty much Weekend Warrior with bolts. See the below link. Cheers

Can admin please check the above tick list in relation to the topo as its missing a route titled 'new route' which should be route 4 on the list. This places all further routes out of place with topo.
