Horse Thief Quarry

  • Contexto da graduação: UK
  • Ascensões: 39




A small quarry with 20 routes ranging from 4c to 7a. It is sunny until late afternoon and the rock dries quickly.


Not as big as its neighbors but it's a nice place to tick a lot of routes in the 5-6 grade.

Questões de acesso

No issues.


Driving from Stoney village, just before the main car park at Horseshoe quarry there is a small layby, leave your car there and cross the road through the woods where you will find the quarry. (less than 2 minutes of walk).

Beware of crossing the road, the road is busy and the layby is just at the bend of the road. It's better and safer to walk up a little bit to the straight bit of the road, then cross to the other side.

Onde ficar

Plenty of B&B in the nearby villages.

Ética herdado de Peak District Limestone

Being a national park, consult the local guide books and the regional access database for any closures. As usual, Nesting birds, and protected flora should be preserved. Some crags are on Private land, and therefore act reasonably if asked to leave.
