Wow! I am really impressed by the shear volume of climbing here. :O

Hold your horses, it is almost definitely going in the new Avon guide. Theres a lot of rare plants and trees in the quarries so much surveying and negotiation is going on.
Mark Davies PK - 04/Aug/14
why is climbing discouraged here but tree climbing is encouraged and mountain biking celebrated? having just climbed a lovely little route here maybe its time to go public with the rest.

The "secret" part of Leigh woods is going to be well worth several visits once all is revealed. Seriously can't wait!
