Crag features

Not the most prepossessing of quarries although the best of the routes are worth calling in for. The place is only a few minutes from the road, and it also gets the morning sun. Following CRoW, the quarry is now on open access land and has a good collection of clean climbs, many of which follow strong lines. Get them done and help keep the place in a decent condition.

With its east-facing aspect the cliff gets the sun until early afternoon, and as such is a good venue for early risers. Some sections of the quarry take drainage (or even spout impressive waterfalls) and are inclined to be sandy after rain, taking several days to come into prime condition. Fortunately several of the buttresses jut forward enough to stay dry, the great classic of Renaissance (E4) is especially notable in this respect so you have no excuse for not calling in and getting it done.

Approach notes

Parking Update 2021: Double yellow lines have been added to the lay-by opposite the farm, closest parking is now either the lay-by's either side of Binn Green or Binn Green Car Park.

The quarry is situated above the A635 Holmfirth to Greenfield road, which is still known as the 'Isle of Skye road' after a long-gone pub. There is parking for several cars in a lay-by on the opposite side of the road to the farm just downhill from the gated track that leads up into the quarry.

Approach time: 5 mins

Restricted Access

'Private Land' signs have appeared at some points along the boundary with the A635 road which has led to some confusion over whether access is permitted or not. This land is designated as Open Access and the public have a full legal right to access is for recreation on foot, including climbing. Please keep dogs on a lead to help avoid future difficulties.
