At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving. Please proceed with caution though.

Small disused quarry near conisbrough. The crag that comes to mind when you hear of the Esoteric East. Has the hardest problem on the Magnesium Limestone with that of Bordello. Classics of the area are found here The Big Dig, Diamond White and Midnight Caller. Probably over developed for what it is. Some hard unrepeated problems here. Limestone boulders detached from the main edge clean up really well where as the main walls/crag is very dusty and needs a good clean.
Park on Garden lane on the bend before the quarry. You could drive down the lane if your feeling brave but a lot of youths are there abouts up to no good. The crag marker is in the correct place, and access is easiest by approaching across the field (through one of several large entrances guarded by boulders, or from a low red gate towards the 90 degree bend in garden lane).
Walk across the field, aiming for the western corner. Cross a low barb wired gate into the next field west, aim for the western corener which is approximately the top of the quarry. Descent to the bottom of quarry is easiest looking left downhill, where there is a reasonable path. The other side has more trees and is more challenging with a pad.
