Heptonstall

Climbs 100 – Rocktype Grit (quarried) – Altitude 260m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
I have climbed a low traverse of the whole quarry from right to left called Technical Dancer Font 7A+ V7. A video of it is on Youtube under Heptonstall bouldering. John Wilson.

Access notes
You can also get to the rocks from walking through the woods from bank foot - emerge from behind the houses at the bottom of the hill. Just follow the windy path up and it runs below the right hand outcrop on the main quarry.

An good spot with enjoyable climbs, its regularly climbed unlike many of the smaller quarrys in the area making the rock itself relatively clean.

The directions in the Yorkshire Grit guide are a bit confusing - don't take the narrow 'walled path' next to the entrance to the social club car park, as this adds an extra 15 mins walkin! The crag is actually only a few mins from the car park - take the wider 'walled lane' opposite the car park, then turn left through the new housing estate to bring you to stone steps leading down to the crag.
