UPPERWOOD QUARRY


Not the most prepossessing of quarries although the best of the routes are worth calling in for. The place is only a few minutes from the road, and it also gets the morning sun. Recently the quarry has been given a make-over and now has a good collection of clean climbs, many of which follow strong lines - get them done and help keep them in decent condition!
