Access Advice

The quarries are mainly owned by First Hydro. Access for climbing is offically not permitted by the landowners, due to liability concerns. However climbing is tolerated if climbers generally keep a low profile, avoid damaging fences, do not interfere with any of the power station buildings or apparatus or any of the historic structures within the quarry. Access to the whole of the upper quarries have become especially sensitive in recent years and climbers should not gather in large numbers, especially at Dali's Hole area. Bolts have been removed from Dali's Hole by a local climber (late 2010) who is concerned that continued use by large groups of climbers would jeopardise access to the whole site. There have also been a number of reported altercations between climbers and First Hydro security staff. BMC advice remains unchanged -please do not damage fences or signs and if accosted by security staff, please be courteous and report any issues to the BMC.
