Crag features

A ramshackle rambling quarry where three good areas guard the suicidally tottering towers of the main and mighty Dovestones Quarry, from where many routes are tumbling their way towards Greenfield. The three, the Lower Left Quarry, the Waterfall Area, and the Lower Right Quarry, all hold fine routes and are worth visits on nice summer evenings.

Good route descriptions here.

Approach notes

From the parking by the dam, take the track around the lake and follow the short path that branches diagonally through the trees and up into the quarry.

Restricted Access

There was a large rockfall in May 2006, routes around Titan Groove and Tower of Bable have been effected. The area still contains loose rock - caution is strongly advised.

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 1 March to 15 July

Reason: Nesting Birds

The restriction applies to the Central Quarry and Waterfall Area of Dovestones Quarry during the above dates (the lower left and lower right quarries are fine to access year round however).
