Split in half by a road, both sections of the quarry feature a surprisingly good set of climbs along with some nice traverses for training.
If there is anyone wanting to do a new route then there is plenty of choice, there are plenty of unclimbed lines that are ideal for bouldering in the upper quarry. The lower quarry has plenty of unclimbed/unrecorded rock that has never been properly recorded by teams in the past.
There are unrecorded areas has now being explored so any "new" route climbed will be recorded as a Ist ascent unless someone from the Bretton Hall college days can come foward with some information.
There is a lay by with room for around 15 cars on Woolley edge lane, parking on Common lane is now not possible.
