Crag features

The crag has trad routes which were put up by Jamie Main back in the early 80s.  In recent years, these had received few ascents and many had become overgrown.  In 2021, Keith Davidson cleaned and removed a large amount of loose rock before bolting some new sport routes as well as retrobolting some of the original trad routes.  The trad routes have not been checked by the moderator but have been listed separately for completeness.

Approach notes

From the A91 in Dollar, follow signs for Castle Campbell.  Park in the big car park half way up the road to Castle Campbell (56.171890, -3.670618). Walk up the road until you come to a track on the right with two boulders at the entrance. Take this which leads you to Dollar Quarry. 10 mins from car park maximum.


Restricted Access

There are bats nesting directly on route of Muskets Mantle as of 11/11/2023.

NOTE FROM CRAG MODERATOR:  Access rope has been repaired - thanks Brendan!  There is also an alternative route to the upper part of the quarry - a rough path starts more or less directly below the upper area

Mainly technical routes, and not long, so not great for a workout. Great place for indoor climbers to improve footwork!

Fantastic wee venue, so good to see so many folk climbing there today.

We were up playing last night and I was surprised how much greener the rock looked (haven't been in two months). Could really do with some more traffic as there is some good climbing to be had.

Was up having a play last night and found that the bracken at the top of the main wall (we were climbing M$M's) has been burnt down and a new fence has been constructed (good belay points).

Actually saw other climbers here for the first time ever on Friday. Nice to see the place starting to get used more often.
