INDEPENDENCE QUARRY


The heavily worked but now abandoned Independence Quarry is tucked away on the hillside below the level of the major Trevor crags. The climbable sections of the quarry have been bolted and it now provides a good number of routes in the 6th grade. The quarry is a fairly pleasant spot with a fine outlook and a sunny and relatively sheltered aspect. The rock quality is variable and needs to be handled with care, especially around the horizontal band of shale that runs across all of the lines.
