Bus Stop Quarry

Climbs 60 – Rocktype Slate – Altitude 450m a.s.l – Faces ?

Crag features

Five minutes' walk (if that) from the road. Many pleasant slab routes at E2-E4, with sparse bolts (4 bolts in 25m). Also some worrying lower-grade trad routes: rock and finishes may be loose or fragile.

Approach notes

Mind the fence after parking on the roundabout.

Access notes

Restrictions apply from  15 February - 30 April. Reason - Nesting Birds

Ravens nest directly above the routes Hasta La Vista Baby and Race Against The Pump. All three routes on Jenga Buttress on the Upper Levels are also restricted as they are level with and directly opposite the nest- Bish Bash Bosch, Bosch Stop Quarry, and Jenga.

The first bolt on Septuagenarian is now missing but you can use a small cam just above this if required.

Had a nervous lower-off after seconding Septuagenarian this weekend. Had heard the right-hand lower-off bolt was quite loose, but the left-hand one also wobbled a millimetre or so...
