The largest of the Wilton Quarries, Wilton 1 hosts some of the proudest lines around as well as the iconic feature - The Prow - a testament to the quarryman’s skill and a rite of passage for the Lancashire trad climber to repeat one of its routes. The climbing here is arguably the finest in Lancashire - thin cracks, sharp breaks and a glut of challenging routes make this quarry is an excellent and convenient playground, with an even more convenient pub located outside the quarry.
