Approach notes

As from July 2013 the farmer owning the land has requested that no climbing should take place. Please respect his wishes and efforts will be made to resolve the situation.

Access Banned

Following the landowner recently realising that the quarry is used for climbing, the BMC has been informed that climbing is not permitted here.

Visited in late July, great little crag! No growth on the wall itself, lots of loose rocks over near Hodder Wall and Ace of Spades.

The photo of 'Last Crack' submitted by anteater, Sept2011, actually shows the climber veering off left into Evening Crack/Drought Line.

29 May - repeat visit, now almost entirely dry, and not too bad for vegetation either. Had the place to myself all evening- tastic!

Visited evening of 24 May 2012; dry for 80% of the crag, just the western corner very wet as the sun doesn't hit it at all yet. Base of the crag nice and level grass area, top of the crag easy access and well staked. All climbs are labelled/numbered as per the Lancashire climbing guide too. You can squeeze a couple of cars onto the verge on the nearest road, but there's a decent carpark 5 minutes walks away. Worth a visit in my humble.

Volunteer to moderate Cardwell Quarry
We rely on volunteers to moderate their local crags. You would check updates and approve climbs added to the database. It's a very easy job, and all you need is a guidebook and an hour or two each month. [ read more ]
