Cowraik QuarryCumbria, ENGLAND
Climbs 84 – Rocktype Sandstone (soft) – Altitude 160m a.s.l – Faces S
First ascents of the older routes were mainly done by local mountain rescue teams who used the quarry as a training area. The rock is soft and so leading is discouraged, with the use of a bouldering mat strongly encouraged. Top outs are often grim, and its often easier to jump/climb down.
