Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.
At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.
We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

Navigation Quarry is a pleasant climbing venue located on moorland high above the valley. This is one of the older cragging spots developed on the sandstone and consequently some of the routes are not full clip-up sport routes. Bolts have been kept off of the established trad lines, but there are still plenty of excellent fully bolted sport climbs for those up to them. Not all of the established traditional lines are included here and only fully bolted sport pitches are given sport grades.
Dates: 1 March to 1 August
Reason: Nesting Birds
BMC have been advised that Barn Owls could be nesting at this crag. If so these birds have special protection under the Wildlife and Countryside Act. Avoid climbing the routes on the Left Hand Retaining wall "Left Over" to "Half man-Half Machine" inclusive.
|There is a wobbly block that contains the third bolt on relaxed ladybird. This bolt could do with being moved as it's highly unlikely to hold a fall.|
