Shutdown quarry filled with water


Used for climbing since the 50ies, the Westbruch has lost importance due to the continued rising of the water table. Consequently, it became a diver's destination (the quarry is rented by a diving club), while most routes have lost their lower parts. For nearly all routes, reaching the base requires rapelling-in or boat access. While the water is clean and fit for swimming, the suitability for DWS is limited because of the partially submerged terraces and the sub-vertical walls.

Access issues
