Brilliant to see bolts being changed, as love this place, a real hidden gem. could do with some more stakes on the upper left hand side above things like jugglers crack, either that or i cant find them in the bracken. also has captain pugwash actually fallen down as i swear its there ?

Many of the old bolts and hangers have been replaced (June 2015). Most are like for like so still expect some spicy moves, Anvil Arete etc. Plus there's a few new anchor bolts and stakes on top. Thanks to all involved : )

Recent rockfalls have removed Captain Pugwash & Spare Rib Lorna's orifices is dangerous to climb due to hanging flake. Also many of the bolt hangers on Upper quarry RHS have been removed

There has been a rockfall on the left side of the popular easy wall at the entrance on the top right hand side of quarry. It is obvious and has destroyed a bolted route left of the wall (often used to abseil)and is next to the easy sloping corner goove. If you look there remains a massive detached flake that looks dangerous.Oct 2011.
