Halton Heights

Some further developed bouldering on natural edge and blocks between the two quarries and newly recorded problems in the main left-hand quarry courtesy of Malcolm Townsley. Interesting, varied and some quite highball. For other details see p.216 in the 2014 YMC guide. It is known that these boulders and crags were poured over by local activists many years ago – on local lad even used them as a leg-up to get quite good. Ron someone?



Also the set of nice blocks below the road written up for the first time courtesy of Dave Prince and Bryn Hoyle.


Also, some good sounding problems in the Upper Quarry recorded by Malcolm Townsley
