Langcliffe Quarry

Climbs 89 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 241m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
This is really two crags; the quarry (which has a number of faces)and Skyline Buttress, a natural crag (some of which overlook the quarry)that is in the wood up and to the left.

Both crags are approached from the ample parking place below the quarry.

Approach to Skyline is through the woods following a steep path up the left edge of the left quarry.

Access notes
It should be assumed both are covered by the same bird ban at certain times of the year (see BMC RAD)
