Meathop QuarryCumbria, ENGLAND
Climbs ? – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 12m a.s.l – Faces S
Some areas are loose. There are about 20 reported routes, but there is much scope for development and 'route density' is low, with large unclimbed areas across the quarry. Most routes are by Charlie Vigano, though Andy Hyslop supplied a few. Many routes need to be re-climbed and documented as landmarks have changed - it is over 25 years since the last full guide was published (1983).
There is a useful descent route along large ledges among the first few climbs of the quarry. A ruin towards the right-hand end of the first area provides a useful landmark, as do the various trees at the top and bottom of the face. The topout provides great views across the Kent channel towards Arnside and Arnside Knott, and on clear days you can see Morecambe (an unappetising prospect for some).
