Lester Mill QuarryLancashire, ENGLAND
Climbs 75 – Rocktype Grit (quarried) – Altitude 170m a.s.l – Faces W
The best routes here are found on the Evil Wall (E1-E4), which comes complete with evil top-out. There are many routes graded VS and below on the other buttresses - the most solid/cleanest of these being the Setback and Lester Rib areas.
You may have to bushwack a little to get to the bottom of the routes, and there may be areas of vegetation and loose rock. But if this puts you off leading you could top-rope here without anyone ever finding out!
There are several belay stakes above the Lester Rib/Wirebrush Crack area and also one above the Setback area. There maybe others further down towards the Evil Wall.
