Crag features

Small quarry close to Castlewellan and Tollymore National Outdoor Centre. Frequent location for introductory climbing and abseiling. It has been leased by Sport NI for many years, and is used by most local centres and providers for rockclimbing sessions. It has recently (2018) been cleaned up and bolted (with over 15 routes from relatively easy, up to about 6b). There are belay / abseil posts around the rim of the quarry and lower-offs above most of the climbs.

Approach notes

Space to Park for a few cars at the entrance.
