Went here last night - there are some good climbs here, especially on the flake crack slab, however the top outs are thought provoking - a good clean and more traffic should sort this out. I disagree with the comment above that it's a write off, but acknowledge that there are better places to climb!

Visited this quarry on 5/6/2007. Some worthwhile climbs on Entrance Walls but exits often poor with loose rock. Plenty of good stakes at top. Nice views towards Winter Hill.

This crag is rubbish. It is falling apart and the very few decent climbs here are located in one small area. Furthermore they have terrible exits. Helmets are a must and, sadly, cleaning this crag is a bit much to hope for. This crag should be given to the gun club that uses Wilton 2 and 3, and leave those two gems to the climbers. Visit this place if you will, but you're not likely to want to go back.
