The Owners of the road most people park on have put up "No Parking" signs due to irresponsible drivers, please use the carpark that is BEFORE the wooden bridge - Lets not make access worse.

A block has come away on Alexander / Brightspark above overlap this winter, but doesn't appear to change grade
There is also no longer a capping overhang on layback crack don't know how it affects the climbing as it was wet today
May 2022: some quarry infilling appears to be taking place. Future plans are not yet clear. As ever, remain polite.
A locally important gritstone quarry is accessed by a public footpath from the Warland hamlet. Under the CROW act, the quarry is now open country. For many years the landowner and his son have been amenable to access by climbers. It is important that you show courtesy to the landowner and his son, whose houses you will pass as you walk up the footpath – this will ensure amicable access for future climbers.
There is a pool at the bottom of the quarry, whose size fluctuates according to rainfall and is currently preventing access to the Pool Aea and Green Wall. After you leave the public footpath, take care in your approach to the crag.
|There has been further rockfall in the same area, one large block has come to rest on the ledge

|There's been a fairly large rockfall recently it affects two routes severly - Take away and Pickwick, it may have also affected Delicatessen and Swordfish but to a lesser extent.
The grass at the top of the crag appears to have been cleaned up to prevent anyone falling through it.

|A pleasant little venue - minor, but peacefully situated with some good, often bold routes (take your RPs, Offsets, Swedges, Peenuts, Sliders, Ballnuts, RocknRollers, filed down handplaced Rurps etc etc). The Pool Wall, small but impressively sheer and clean, is well worth a look - see BMC guide for details (and note the very good Hawkeye is a solo...).
