Crag features

Recently bolted upper tier provides some enjoyable climbing.

The main quarry appears loose however has some good rock and lines.

Approach notes

1 minute walk in from the carpark inside the Quarry to the main wall.

10 minutes to the Upper Tier

Bird ban March - June.

Restricted Access

The site is part of a Local Nature Reserve and the quarry floor below Main Wall provides an important orchid habitat - please avoid this area from April - June inclusive. NOTE: The roof of the cave left of Gouffle is thought to be unstable and is being monitored by Lancashire County Council. Please take care not to damage the rock or indicators which are measuring any movement. The agreed bolting programme on the Terrace Wall has been completed and the owners have requested no further bolting.

Went and had a look at this crag today, was a bit bizarre seeing 2 and 3 star routes totally filled with vegetation. Sort of wonder if these routes get many, if any, ascents? As brought up by others, rock also looks very dubious in certain spots

went to the upper tire today, routes are good fun and well bolted. Was better towards the right hand end, generally better rock. Star trek was good though.
