Event Description

In preparation for a sport climbing trip in April, am heading over to Horseshoe quarry this Saturday.

All are welcome!

Horsehoe Quarry is probably the centre of mid and lower grade sport climbing in the Peak with many good routes between 6a and 7a, and a few below.

Quick drying and a good year round venue. Popular on sunny evenings. The best routes are on the Main Wall, 23m high, reasonably sound, but often sportingly bolted. Bolts and lower-offs on some routes have recently been replaced by the BMC, but this does not mean that the bolt spacing is comparable to an indoor wall. Best routes are Rain Dance (F6c+), Legal Action (F6c), Run For Your Wife (F6c+), Private Prosecution (F6c+), Litany Against Fear (F6b+), Megalithic Man (F6b+) and Shot Your Bolt (F6b+).
