Cathedral Quarry

Slate & Sport

User attention

There has been a substantial rockfall in the quarry near the group abseil point. All routes right of Burley Dudes are likely to be effected and it is worth giving them and the base of the crag around the rockfall a wide berth for now. from 10/01/2020

Impressive slate quarry with spectacular climbing in a sunny location.
