Rocktype Grit (quarried)
Highballing at Montcliffe. Video: vimeo.com/160531868 © SLB
Over the winter 2009/10 quite a lot of freeze thaw damage has occured to the western wall of the quarry making some of the climbs obsolete and others loose & dangerous.
Crag now banned due to new owner. She is looking into fencing off the quarry and allowing climbers' access with permission required, so please respect the current ban to allow the situation to progress positively.
|Noticed a pair of kestrels nesting in a corner of Rivington Wall yesterday. Sadly there's some recent graffiti and the whole place feels neglected. A shame as it's otherwise a lovely setting.|

|Pretty overgrown at the moment, this hasn't seen much chalk in a while - could be good with a thorough clean though - not much below VS, but a few choice lines over HVS. worth an evening visit.|
