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. Faces South East East and gets the morning sun
