Dali's Hole

Climbs 72 – Rocktype Slate – Altitude 302m a.s.l – Faces ?

Crag features
Routes mostly concentrated around the E1 grade. Some routes (the very hardest) have bolts, though hardly count as sport. Since 2006 many easier lines have been well bolted, to make this a popular sport climbing spot on a sunny day.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT ALL ROUTES ON THE HOLY HOLY HOLY WALL ARE IN AN AREA OF DISPLAY, AND DUE TO CURRENT SITUATION WITH FIRST HYDRO, PLEASE `DO NOT `GATHER HERE IN LARGE NUMBERS, OR THIS COULD HAVE AN AFFECT ON ACCESS TO THE WHOLE QUARRYS.

`DO NOT` DAMAGE THE FENCE!

Access notes
Reached from Bus Stop Quarry parking and following the well-marked path through a gate, until you can see the large pool and bolted slab of Dali's Hole on the left.

follow access from commenter below, also the abseil (in or off your climb) is either walk around, trust a rotting stumpy wooden (concreted based) post, trust a small rusty iron hanger of sorts or bring 2 L brackets and 2 nuts as there are bolts left in.

DO NOT CLIMB THE FENCE!!!! The following link will show the correct 'spiral / round the back access' http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?msid=206243880791400744219.0004a7dffa652925269da&msa=0

Does anyone know what the name (if logged) of the sport climb between 'Zambesi' and 'Launching Pad' ? it has a piece of slate at the bottom which says it was bolted by accident and is at f6b... Cheers.
