Crag features

The quarry has lots of bouldering pertential in the surounding area. Don't expect lots of gear placements on the routes that are in this quarry, and a small slection of the routes are done by soloing so don't forget the crash mat

Approach notes

No access restrictions are in place, the quarry is a good 20 minute walk for the White house pub car park.

There's an amazing panoramic photo of this area on http://www.cragmaps.co.uk/cows-mouth-quarry well worth a look. Thanks to whoever made this site!

Been to Summit Quarry in the valley and though we'd come here. The climbing is fantastic but very bold, recommend bringing a pad and a selection of micro cams (lots) and small wires. The slabby area is very grippy with some superb climbing while the steep area's are just as good. The upper part Z-crack is a little dirty so i recommend a clean before you attempt it in future. Definitly need to come again and well worth a visit, dries rapidly too.
