Crag features

Small Limestone Quarry in a pleasant secluded setting with splendid views across Arkengarthdale. Routes up to 10 meters, with some polish on the classic cracklines. Very convenient climbing, level top and bottom, stake belays (old, caution). Sometimes used by the military and groups. Some holds still prone to flake-off! (though most dodgy ones already gone).

Approach notes

Easy access - In Downholme village; 2 minutes through a field behind the Bolton Arms car park. There are signs indicating that MOD permission is required, but a discreet approach works for the locals who climb here.

Restricted Access

Updated arrangements for using the crag were confirmed in August 2021. Individuals wishing to use the crag must ring the Bookings Office on 01748 875507 to ensure the quarry is free and available.
