Shore Quarry

Climbs 20 – Rocktype Grit (quarried) – Altitude 210m a.s.l – Faces SE

Crag features
The first ascents of shore quarry were in 1984 but it has not laid to rest since then, the quarry features a plentiful supply of belay stakes above the best lines, although who put these stakes in, and first climbed the routes beneath them, is currently unknown (to me at least).

The top outs of most of the routes are loose but manageable.

The height varies from 8 to 12 metres.

Ive heard there has been some rockfall near the middle of the quarry and that it (the quarry) is no longer used by one of the local outdoor centres due to instability. Take care.

NOTE: Have moved the quarry location on the map so it is now in the right place. Second Note: This quarry (Shore Quarry) is often confused with Shaw quarry
