Ravelston/ Blackhall quarry
Still very much a work in progress, lots of loose rock removed. As yet still unbolted and really completely unprotectable. Good trees at the top of belays though. Its hard sand stone covered in lichen. No posibility of rock climbing on the lines we are working on and no one has climbed this quarry or is likely to want to. Lots of potential as a great tooling venue. Routes 10-
Edinburgh Blackhall/ Ravelston Woods. Quarry is easiest to access from North, through the woods at Craigcrook Road at the park there is a path on the far right hand corner of the park that leads up into the woods, as you enter the woods the quarry is easily visable as is access to the top further to the right.
