Foggintor quarry Dartmoor Jan 2010 © danfermor

Crag features

On entrance from the track there is a large pond on the right hand side of the pond there is the arête of swan lake just to help you get your bearings. The rock is sometimes loose so go carefully!

Approach notes

2.5mi W from Two Bridges on B357. Car park on L; farm track (Yellowmead Farm) running S leads to the quarry. You can also park near Devil's Elbow on the Yelverton to Princetown road and follow the disused tramway to the quarry. [Kathryn Bromfield]

Rubbish venue. Only worthwhile route is Limestone Cowboys, but that's hard as fook.

Magnificent views and hugh potential for further development at all grades. More up-to-date route info would help!

One of the advantages of this area is that the military use it for training, so there are a lot of solid anchorages in place. However, this also means that in places the rock is quite polished.
