Restricted Access

The landowner has recently informed the BMC and climbers on site that he does not allow climbing in the quarry. Several unsucessful attempts have been made meet with the landowner, but no response has been forthcoming so far. Anyone climbing the the quarry may asked to leave - if this happens, please do so politely.

Gain the terrace at 10m by climbing one of several easy approach pitches, or by using a fixed rope on the right.
Start at a 2-bolt belay below the LH flank of the Red Dust Wall.
Climb up to a shallow flake/corner and reach up left to a handrail. Swing left along the handrail until it is possible to stand on it. Move up to a line of hand-holds leading back right to a jug. Pull up and then up right to a resting place close to the right edge of the wall. Gain the break above and traverse back left. Make a stiff pull onto the pockety finishing wall and reach a 2-bolt abseil station.
