VIVIAN QUARRY


Being close to Llanberis and being full of great climbs has made the Vivian Quarry a popular venue. This was, after all, the birth place of slate climbing back in 1981 when Stevie Haston borrowed a knife from Pete's Eats and cleaned one of the most impressive lines in the quarries - Comes The Dervish - which is still on every slate climbers' ticklist to this day.
