Marske Quarry


Details of this crag was previously recorded in North of England Rock Climbs by Stewart Wilson.


OS Landranger Sheet: 99

Map Reference:  114991


This loose and generally unattractive Limestone quarry is located four and a half miles West of Richmond on the left-hand side of the A6108 just before the junction with the B6270 leading into the upper dale. Marske Quarry has two tiers of rock the Upper Tier is dangerous and rock dislodged can endanger people on the Lower Tier. A big layby gives access to the Lower Tier.


The climbs were first recorded in 1971 by P.lngham, M.Binks, G.Davison and T. McLean. The Upper Tier gave eight routes which are not described due to the instability of the rock and their lack of popularity in the inter­vening years.
