Summit Quarry map General Information

The quarry is set on the moor above and east of the A6033 Littleborough–Todmorden road at the village of Summit. The quarry is generally sound, but there is some loose rock. The text mentions this where necessary. There are cracks, slabs and walls here and there is a fine variety of climbs to be enjoyed. The crag does dry slowly, so a day or so of dryish weather is needed to ensure that most of the climbs are dry.

The best approach is from the Summit Inn, about three kilometres north of Littleborough, where there is a bus stop on the Rochdale–Burnley and Rochdale–Todmorden–Halifax routes. If coming by car, turn down the cobbled lane beside the pub, cross the canal, turn left and park on the left about 50 metres farther on.Then walk along the track to a hairpin bend which leads rightwards. At this point cross the stile on the left and follow the track parallel to the canal, upwards to Canal Buttress. Continue along and round to the right to a fence and another stile. The narrow defile that leads into the quarry lies ahead. This pleasant approach takes about 20 minutes.

All the climbs are described from LEFT to RIGHT.
