WILTON 2


On the crest of the hill above the deep slash of Wilton 1 are three more quarries, numbered from left to right 4, 2 and 3! Number 4 is short, overgrown and unpopular, but both 2 and 3 are well worth a visit and, because of their proximity to each other, a useful day can be spent between the pair of them. The rock is not the most impressive but the routes are more friendly than Wilton 1 and especially of interest if you operate in the green and orange grade zones. Wilton 2 tends to have the harder routes, offering steep, fingery and challenging climbing whereas, in Wilton 3, there are more routes of an amenable angle and grade. The well-battered areas below the Orange and Rappel Walls is an indication of how popular these areas are with supervised groups; be prepared to share the objects of your desire!
