Walltown Quarry

Climbs 23 – Rocktype Dolerite – Altitude 234m a.s.l – Faces N

Crag features
A sparsely, or putting it another way sportingly, bolted quarry on the Whin Sill. Take a set of wires. Some of the routes are pretty good. There is an online guide, but Charles seems to have removed the links to it. E-mail the NMC for the guide by Colin Struthers.

Access notes
The crags are 1KM E of Greenhead on the Military Road. The main crag is about 300mtrs from the carpark, on the RH skyline.
