Navigation Quarry is a pleasant climbing venue located on moorland high above the valley. This is one of the older cragging spots developed on the sandstone and consequently some of the routes are not full clip-up sport routes. Bolts have been kept off of the established trad lines, but there are still plenty of excellent fully bolted sport climbs for those up to them. Not all of the established traditional lines are included here and only fully bolted sport pitches are given sport grades.
Dates: 1 March to 1 August
Reason: Nesting Birds
BMC have been advised that Barn Owls could be nesting at this crag. If so these birds have special protection under the Wildlife and Countryside Act. Avoid climbing the routes on the Left Hand Retaining wall "Left Over" to "Half man-Half Machine" inclusive.
We are also informed that there are birds nesting on the far right of the crag, left of Alco-Troll Buttress, please be mindful of these birds also and keep a healthy distance. (updated 12/04/2021)
