This granite quarry was developed in the 1960ies, but due to loose rock was ignored until recently. The quarry is nicely seperated into three bays, a large eastern bay, a small central bay and a large western bay. A number of new boulder problems have been discovered in the right hand bay, while a small number of new sports routes have been developed in all three bays.
Restrictions apply from
Reason: Nesting Birds
The restriction may be lifted or modified later in the season following site visits by RSPB. The quarry is in three distinct bays, and the birds (two seperate protected species) tend to vary their exact nest sites each year. Outside of the restricted times climbers are asked to be aware that if their prescence disturbs the birds (screeching sounds, and obviously agitated birds) then they should not linger beneath the nest area.
2014 Update - restriction in middle and right hand bays have been lifted early. Left hand buttress remains restricted.
