Sam Hamer and Finn McCann have just had a great week at the Shropshire sandstone quarry of Nesscliffe, ticking many of the hard classic routes including:
Plus several classic E4's and E5's.
Nesscliffe is a stunning quarry of red sandstone rising up to a height of forty five metres. You can read more about the crag in the UKC Logbooks.
Commenting in the logbooks, Lee Proctor described the venue:
"A stunning undervalued crag that has some of the very best lines anywhere in the UK. Just walk into the main quarry, look up at the soaring arête and corner climbs then take a sharp intake of breath. It is very easy to set up top ropes and work routes before the “head-point”, I just can't understand why this place has not had more press as it is certainly one of Britain's climbing treasures."
