Powmill QuarryPerth and Kinross, SCOTLAND
Climbs 40 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude 162m a.s.l – Faces SW
Some fun was had by the original discoverers in an unconventional style by going around all the boulders for as long as possible and then by increasing the difficulty of the route - impossible to grade or record but fun for kids, one rule:touch the ground your out! Some landings are terrible so beware. If its a hot day bring a towel. The main quarry is full of clean spring fed water, good for a swim.
Poor rock in places, topping out on Razorback etc. should be done with trepidation or avoided by traversing off or jumping at the first break. Belayers should be aware of the dangers of falling rock too.

Powmill quarry near to the village of Powmill in Perth and Kinross, as you leave the village towards Stirling look for evidence of a quarry on the LHS of the A977.
Please do not block the gates to the quarry as the land owner needs constant access. The flooded part is used as a diver training area as access is always needed. there is space at the gates or 50m further along there is a small lay-by for 3 cars. The grass verge is wide and flat - beware soft ground after rain. you can park here as well. Camping and controlled fires accepted by land owner. So only leave chalk marks.
Weekends often see the local youth camping and drinking so may be best to avoid, also don't leave valuables in the cars as you are a long way from them and they are obvious sat on the roadside verge.
