Restricted Access

November 2017 update

Reports of climbers being told to leave by security staff from the quarry and stating that they will be removing the bolts form this venue. BMC are investigating.

The owners of the site (Cemex Ltd) have approached the BMC to advise that this crag is within and forms part of a larger site that is an active and working quarry. They are legally bound by the Quarries Regulations 1999 to ensure that they take appropriate steps to prevent public access to the site, and have requested the BMC to inform climbers that climbing is not allowed at this site. 

2020 update

Climbers have been heavily using this crag (especially during lockdown) with no issues. If approached by Cemtex Staff, please comply with their request if asked to leave and get in touch with your local access rep.

UKC Logbook Description
The pocketed right hand route on The Diamond. A little green and muddy in the pockets but this does not detract from a generally fun outing. Starting on the left using Pinch hold for left hand (shared withBlack World) ups the grade to 6b+. This is the original line of the route NOT the mossy slab on the right.
