Rocktype Grit (quarried)
Altitude 100m a.s.l
Roundbarn Quarry, Bolton Area, Lancashire © SLB
A two tiered quarry with the only climbing on the upper tier. Could do with a clean, or a bit more use as there are some good routes here. Notable ones include: The Pross, E1 5b and Mustard VS 4c.
|Just discovered that there is a total restriction on this crag until July 2016 due to nesting Peregrine Falcons (Check BMC Website). Not April 2016 published here under the Access Advice on here!

|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.|
