Crag features

Climbing by permission only. **Currently Closed for clean up**

We are just waiting for a gate to be put in to prevent the owner's dogs from getting to climbers and then it will be open for business! - 11/03/15

Approach notes

Climbing by permission only. **Currently Closed for clean up**

Clean up currently in process, once completed the owner (Ben) plans to allow climbing to take place on the area behind the summer house. He will request that climbers let him or his wife know they intend to climb so they know who is at the bottom of their garden.

Once clean up has been completed access to the crag will be through the gate at the foot of the quarry on Bacup Road.

Restricted Access

Climbing is permitted but it is essential that climbers first ask permission at the cottage called The Matchbox, which is adjacent to the crag. Thais has been readily given in the past, but DO NOT climb if there is no one in.

Day 5 of clean up finished last night with two first ascents - going to tackle the roof area next and then it'll be done!

Day two of clean up complete, I've got a number of the left hand ledges sorted out an taken away alot of loose rock. I plan to have a look at the right hand side of the quarry (pillar face etc) on my next visit.
