Bramcrag Quarry

Cumbria, ENGLAND

Climbs 45 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 200m a.s.l – Faces W

Crag features
A fine-granite quarry close to Castle Rock in St. Johns in the Vale. From a distance the quarry looks dangerously loose but closer inspection reveals some good solid areas of rock. Many of the routes when they were first put up were a mixture of trad and occasional home made bolt hangers. Many upper tier routes are hard to protect with trad gear and some have now been retro-bolted.

Not an aesthetic crag but good slab climbing and accessible for a quick hit.

Access notes
Park in a layby just South of the quarry entrance, follow the zig-zag track to a T-junction, turn right and then up the grass ridge to the upper tier, or straight on to the lower tier.

Peregrines may be nesting in the large chossy bay between the main upper tier and the Bramcrag wall area - do not climb in this area during the spring, and only walk between the two areas at the tier's edge.
