As with all of the quarries round here access is officially not allowed, so keep a low profile and if asked to leave, please do so.
Somehow reminiscent of climbing on a sea cliff! Generally very good rock, routes up to 28m long, a secluded sunny venue with instant access. Some routes can be dusty after rain, but generally does not detract from the climbing.
Rebolted and lower-offs fitted recently.
Leave Wirksworth on the Cromford Road. Turn left into Wirksworth Industrial Centre (Ravenstor Road), and at a mini-roundabout turn right - to a gate. The entrance is just in front, amongst some trees. The quarry is part of the National Stone Centre and climbing is best left until the evenings.
