Higgovale/ Glencoe Quarry

Climbed 2 routes on the left side as you enter the quarry, they have no names but are numbered 4 (graded-18)& 5 (graded-15) on the topo, these routes seem to be undergaded-what you guys feel?

I find the grades at the quarry a bit undergraded as well, but then again its a completely different style of climbing to Silvermine, for instance. Much more footwork-oriented.

Personally I think there are plenty of much nicer crags out there. Higgovale quarry's a bit of a dump.

A dump with a short walk-in.

Have you actually climbed the routes I am talking about? They are actually quite good. The "Crack" is an awesome route, I only climb there during the week when have no time to travel, beats climbing indoors

Hi, I am very new at climbing but did climb those 2 routes (I had a hard time) Well, I am finding it super hard finding a partner and I was wondering if you were interested. I am very keen (if maybe a tad crap at it, but I'm persistent) I reckon if I keep on at it I should get a tad better. Let me know?
