The BMC own this popular sport climbing venue and the site is actively managed for the benefit of climbers and local nature interests. The rock in Horseshoe Quarry varies from good quality, solid rock to some areas which can be loose and hollow. As with all climbing, both climbers and belayers should be aware of this and pay close attention at all times and use of helmets is advisable. There have been recent reports (as of Oct 2010) that a block has fallen off from a route in the vicinity of 'Barney Rubble'. Climbers should take care to evaluate whether fixed gear on these routes has not been affected by this rockfall - bolts or lower offs may have become undercut and unstable as a result. Please adhere to the on-site signing.
