A two tiered quarry with the only climbing on the upper tier. Could do with a clean, or a bit more use as there are some good routes here. Notable ones include: The Pross, E1 5b and Mustard VS 4c.

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 1 March to 30 June

Reason: Nesting Birds

The restriction applies to the whole quarry for nesting peregrines. This site has failed numerous times in recent years due to suspected egg or chick theft so please keep an eye out if walking in the area and report any suspicious behaviour around the nest site to the police immediately using 999.
Just discovered that there is a total restriction on this crag until July 2016 due to nesting Peregrine Falcons (Check BMC Website). Not April 2016 published here under the Access Advice on here!

Went here last night - there are some good climbs here, especially on the flake crack slab, however the top outs are thought provoking - a good clean and more traffic should sort this out. I disagree with the comment above that it's a write off, but acknowledge that there are better places to climb!

Visited this quarry on 5/6/2007. Some worthwhile climbs on Entrance Walls but exits often poor with loose rock. Plenty of good stakes at top. Nice views towards Winter Hill.

This crag is rubbish. It is falling apart and the very few decent climbs here are located in one small area. Furthermore they have terrible exits. Helmets are a must and, sadly, cleaning this crag is a bit much to hope for. This crag should be given to the gun club that uses Wilton 2 and 3, and leave those two gems to the climbers. Visit this place if you will, but you're not likely to want to go back.
