Split in half by a road, the upper half features a mix of bouldering lines, as well as a small slab. Only climbs on this slab that are now climbable are from the left hand end upto the central crack as many wagon loads of stone have been tipped there.
If there is anyone wanting to do a new route then there is plenty of choice, there are plenty of unclimbed rock that is ideal for bouldering in the upper quarry. The lower quarry has plenty of unclimbed/unrecorded rock that have never been properly recorded by teams in the past.
There are unrecorded areas still to be explorered!!!, but there will be no guarantee that some spotty student from Bretton Hall College has not been there before you many years ago !!!!. So any "new" route climbed will be recorded as a Ist ascent unless someone from the Bretton Hall college days can come foward with some information.
I have been exploring today 18/10/18 at the unrecorded area. There is quite a few buttresses, not very high maybe 20' high but the best bit there is no rubbish. I will put up some photos soon.
There is a lay by with room for around 15 cars on Woolley edge lane, parking on Common lane is now not possible.
