Bank Quarry

Derbyshire, ENGLAND

Climbs 31 – Rocktype Grit (quarried) – Altitude 200m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
Previously known as North West Quarry and dismissed as a venue, Bank Quarry is part of the Upper Matlock Quarries. Although the base is lined with tall trees the rock dries quickly apart from a few deeper recesses. Sheltered southerly aspect makes it climbable year round. Recently re-discovered and cleaned up there are many steep crack climbs and a few bolder routes. Generally sound rock on the routes though some care should be exercised.

The Boulder on the hillside to the right of the Quarry is a fine highballing venue.

Access notes
The quarry is private property. The ownership has changed hands and the current owner is no longer willing to allow access. If seen you will be asked to leave. However there are no current problems with access to the Boulder which lies outside the quarry owner's property. Approach from above along a track next to a fence that leads down the hillside from behind the Cavendish Playing Fields pavilion.
