Crag features

A disused quarry of excellent granite. Needs a very long period of dry weather and most of the climbs require a good, regular clean.

The crag is home to a number of hard, bold slabby walls with the potential for more.

It's also been known to freeze in the winter to give some dubious ice routes.

Approach notes

From Haytor head north west cross granite railway, descend a steep slope to reach a section of the railway that leads to the quarry mouth

Some years there are some ice climbs in this quarry - unsure which of the lines or grades
