Restricted Access

Wilton 2 and 4 are owned by Bolton Rifle & Pistol Club with agreed times for shooting and climbing - live firing takes place and it is vital that climbers understand and stick to the access arrangements.

In W2 and 4, climbers have priority on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. On days when shooters have priority (and the red warning flags are not in place), climbers can access the quarries for climbing, but they should leave at the shooters request. Please try to avoid the temptation of assuming that the ranges are not being used until at least mid-afternoon. On days when climbers have priority, the shooters can use the sites if climbers are not present when they arrive. However, if climbers arrive, shooting must cease. Please allow them a reasonable time to clear up.

14m.

βeta: A real swine of a move past the depressingly friction-dependent side-pull!! Above it's reassuringly more positive but still committing, especially for shorties to reach the peg! The challenge, grade, and experience, would be significantly reduced with pads.
