As the Covid-19 lockdown eases, access for climbing is opening back up, subject to some measures and restrictions depending on where you are going. Please make sure you have read and understood our current advice before heading out and apply it alongside RAD advice to ensure access issues don’t develop.

Faces SE round the pool. The E2s round the pool are good, as are the E2s on the buttress just north.

A locally important gritstone quarry is accessed by a public footpath from the Warland hamlet. Under the CROW act, the quarry is now open country. For many years the landowner and his son have been amenable to access by climbers. It is important that you show courtesy to the landowner and his son, whose houses you will pass as you walk up the footpath – this will ensure amicable access for future climbers. 

There is a pool at the bottom of the quarry, whose size fluctuates according to rainfall and is currently preventing access to the Pool Aea and Green Wall. After you leave the public footpath, take care in your approach to the crag.

Parking and Approach

Please park carefully at the bottom of the footpath – there is small parking area adjacent to the canal after crossing the narrow Warland canal bridge.
