Shining Bank Quarry. Agents is on the Black Slab.......Only route so far. © Stoney Boy

Crag features

A very large disused Limestone Quarry situated close to Alport. At present there is one route with potential for many more in a unique setting. There are however known access issues and climbing is forbidden. Enter at your own risk. 

Approach notes

From the A6 take the B5056 towards Youlgreave and where the B5056 goes left continue towards Youlgreave. The Quarry can be seen on the right side of the road. Parking is problematic but there is a small space on the right near a new gate. 

This will however alert people to your presence in the quarry as it is clearly visible from the Youlgreave road. 

Climb over the fence and beyond 2 lakes a Black slab can be seen. The only route so far is on the right side of this slab. 

Access Banned

Climbing is Forbidden.
