Tegness Quarries

Climbs 60 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 265m a.s.l – Faces W

Crag features
Two minor quarries in fine position overlooking the Derwent Valley. The left-hand quarry is frighteningly unstable, but its neighbour offers a few short (9m) routes up good, clean rock and the added fun of a detached pinnacle! Best routes are The Original Route (D) and Fingers (VS 4c). Can be tricky to find, especially in the Summer, when the quarries are all but invisible for the trees.

Approach notes
From the National Trust car park (Haywood) at SK 255777, just below The Grouse Inn on the B6504, follow the path beside a stone wall north to an electricity pole. Just past this is a path of the left which contours around the hillside to reach the quarry in a couple of minutes. If you reach the end of the stone wall, or start going downhill through the woods, you've gone the wrong way!

Some good bouldering has been developed in the woods as of late and could do with traffic to keep it clean, starts at V1 up to about V5.
