Crosland Moor Quarry

Grid ref SE118154

Javascript is required to view this map.

Crosland Moor Quarry, a small urban-ish venue consisting of a number of small quarries. End Buttress is the best area, especially on sunny afternoons and evenings, with 4 notable problems (18, 19, 20 & 21).


From the A62 Manchester Road leaving Huddersfield take the B6107 Blackmoorfoot Road. Take the right turn onto Ivy Street and park up at the bottom of the road. There is a path that goes left and down behind the playing fields that leads to the quarries.

An easy to print PDF TOPO guide to all the problems can be downloaded from here
