Slaley Brook

Climbs 46 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude ? – Faces SW

Crag features
A large quarry containing thre main climbing areas of differing height and quality. A huge central area (45m) is of interest since it contains some of the longest sport climbs in the country, ( e.g. Too Monstosity, 7a, 18 clips) although the rock is still in need of more traffic! Either side of this are smaller walls of more solid (but dusty) rock offering a range of climbs in the middle grades (f6 to f7).

Access notes
NOT ALLOWED. There is a big fence in the way and there is some activity on the area above the quarry which means that it is not always deserted in the week. Discretion is recommended.
