Warning: There have been several serious rockfalls in the area above The All Weather Gym and climbing or abseiling on this face could be extremely dangerous. As a result of the on-going danger, group use of this quarry has been banned by the owners.

Further Warning: A minor rockfall has occured from the roof above the driving board in line with the VS bolted line. Though only small foot squared it may well be that more might come down so take care if climbing in this area.

All Weather Gym

At least three slabby routes, Broken Pelvis, Pioneer Meets His Match, and one other, plus Sport for All and possibly OAP's Sport Climb, have had some of their hangers removed. Celler Dwellers and Northumbrian VS are OK. (AL)
