Crag features

Troy quarry is a scenic venue with good quality rock and a good spread of routes. For those learning to lead the 'Siamese slab' routes offer a good area to hone gear placing skills while the bold 'Super Snatch' will entertain the higher grade chasers.

Approach notes

No access issues but do not use fence posts as anchors, there are plenty of stakes all around the top of the crag.

5 minutes from the carpark and lots of good solid mid range routes, one or two minor classics as well. Good place to get a few routes under your belt at the start of the year.

Some climbs have changed due to rockfalls, so grading will be changed - both up and down. Still a lot of loose stone [May 03]. Dries out fast after rain. Good climbing throughout quarry.
