Crag features

An exposed South West facing limestone quarry with an increasing number of climbs, both Sport, Traditional and a mix of the two.

The rock is very rough, almost like gritstone, and a little loose looking in places but offers some excellent cracks and features.

Part of an active quarry much further East, access has the potential to be problematic. Please refer to the link below for more information.

Topo for sport and mixed routes on right side. Largely out dated in parts now. 

Parking further up the road from the main gate is still suggested. With the left hand traditional routes (as good as some of them are) being visible from the road, they will receive a few more onlookers. 

Approach notes

Should be pretty self explanatory but parking away from the main gate would be suggested. Take care to not block the main gate if you must park here, as access is evidently required at times, for large vehicles including tractors.

Restricted Access

Tarmac continue to quarry in a different part of the site and do not permit climbing for health & safety reasons.

Guidebooks

Good climbing and gear on the routes on the left. The rock is clean but the alder bushes at the bottom will need cutting down before long as they'll start to spoil the routes.
