there used to be a big concrete building with a gable cracking away which left a splitter crack at about E1 - building demolished or fell down after 1990 (shame - best route in Troy) but can it be included for posterity - have (poor) photo somewhere.

Why all the red '??' on the grades for some routes when they are graded in Lancashire Rock guide? Is this because of rock fall? Asking as i'm new to the quarry but plan on climbing there quite a bit. Thanks...

5 minutes from the carpark and lots of good solid mid range routes, one or two minor classics as well. Good place to get a few routes under your belt at the start of the year.

Some climbs have changed due to rockfalls, so grading will be changed - both up and down. Still a lot of loose stone [May 03]. Dries out fast after rain. Good climbing throughout quarry.
