Alec Burns being Better Red than Dead E1 5b at Dalt Quarry © Andy Birtwistle

Crag features

Small bolted quarry, good for short days or rapid ticking. Panzerfaust(E3), Als Slab(HVS)

Approach notes

No restrictions.

Had the misfortune to visit this quarry recently. The south side is substantially overgrown and difficult to access. The north side is cleaner but many routes have spaced rusty bolts and many lower offs are very corroded. Stiff grades, midges and a recent big rockfall around route 23 makes this a crag to avoid Needs a total makeover Easy walk in though

Nice little venue if you wanna practice climbing on slate, however the gear on the lower offs is quite dodgy and bolts were loose/rusty. Grades felt harder compared to welsh slate.

A good "bad weather" option (the overhanging south side stayed dry in the driving hail/rain and being slate, the north side dried as we were looking at it). A lot of the routes we tried felt/were harder than the guidebook grades suggested, especially amongst the low grades on the north side.
