Deeply Vale


Good quality quarried gritstone, ideal for evenings. Slabs, roofs, aretes and corners. Lots to do at VS and above. About 10m high.

In early 2021, bolts appeared in the quarry on an existing route (first lead in 1981) and will be removed. Bolts are NOT welcome and should only ever placed in line with local agreements:

  • To replace existing bolts when there is no alternative
  • Where specifically agreed after discussion at an area meeting
  • Where required in order to secure access.


Kestrels have been reported as nesting on Central Arete - please avoid this route until the birds have fledged.
