Myrtle Turtle Quarry

Climbs 4 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 406m a.s.l – Faces ?

Crag features
Short and limited in terms of climbs, but perhaps a worthwhile stop when combined with Lowman or Haytor or Holwell Tor - especially if a bit of shelter would be nice. The highest wall is home to 'Myrtle Turtle' (E3 5b), and the wall to the left contains a couple of short "smart" routes. Mentioned in SDD, however more comprehensively on www.javu.co.uk.

Access notes
On the A38, if approaching from the N follow signs to Bovey Travey and then signposts to Haytor. From the S exit the A38 at Ashburton, then follow signs to Widecombe and Haytor. There is a car park below the main tor. From here descend towards Lowman and follow the vauge path NW for approx 5 minutes - in the direction of the slag heaps and Holwell Tor beyond. The quarry can't really be seen until you stumble over (into?) it.
