EGERTON QUARRY


A hugely extensive quarry, not very far from the honey-pots of the Wilton Quarries, but only seeing a tiny % of their visitors. In recent years that have been attempts to clean up some sections of the crag. Wood Buttress is the best section of the cliff, though not necessarily the most popular. The grades and start ratings assume the routes are clean and dry!
