The Quarry

Wilton 1 is arguably the finest cliff in Lancashire with well over 200 routes many of which are hard or very hard. Although the thin cracks, with which the place abounds, were originally climbed with aid, the area was never the popular practice-ground that the eastern Peak became. Because of this many of the cracks are in near-pristine condition, making them worthy of the attention of any visiting thin-crack-meister. Scattered amongst the hard routes is a reasonable selection of more moderate fare that give the chance to look at the harder routes and imagine - maybe one day! Those who find Wilton 1 a bit intimidating should enjoy Wilton 2 and 3 where the setting and the spread of grades are a little more amenable as is the angle of much of the rock

 

Access

Just 3 miles north of Bolton on the A675 Bolton - Preston road. From Bolton, follow this road until the Wilton Arms pub is reached on the left. A small public car park is available here for access to the main quarry (Wilton 1) which lies directly behind the pub and is reached by walking up the path to the rear of the car park..
