Altitude 350m a.s.l
the butts another gem © brian cropper
Varied rock quality however the listed routes avoid the worst rock.
Climbs are described Right to Left
There are 2 belay stakes above "Hidden Slab" and the bolted Wall left of "The Pillar" as well as various boulders.
Access is unrestricted as the area is CRoW land.
Best option is to park near the Sheperds Rest pub which is on Lumbutts Road above Todmorden - Postcode OL14 6JJ. Follow footpath South East around the hill, not over and the quarry will be in sight in 15-20 mins
|Went there yesterday as i'd never been, looks massive on approach but close inspection reveals much of the rock is rotten, The listed routes obviousley avoid those areas.
Needs a clean, if anyones up for helping with the task give me a shout.|

|The fact that there are so few logged climbs - and many of them are 'hidden' speaks volumes! But there's a few pleasant routes and the outlook is great!|
