We were pretty thin on the ground at Leeds Wall/Big Depot - did people try and climb outside after all?

John A and I went to a dirty old crag, local to where we were working in Lindley, Hudds.
Ended up narrowly missing all the rain and had a great time topping out into mountains of Bilberry infused pigeon guano!
Not the best crag in the world, but close to work!

It was a Kirklees Crag ‘Lindley Edge Quarry’. There were a handful of decent climbs but generally 80% green and the other 20 covered in purple bird s**t!

Hmmmmm... Greetland would be a better option next time. Great bouldering venue, clean landings and only 15 minutes from Lindley.

Did you mean here Rob? (Lindley moor Edge)

But if you want something a bit meatier, you can always try this! (Honley Quarry)

There's loads of little bouldering venues (of varying quality) kicking around Kirkless, as alluded to by Mr Hunt!

Yeah that’s the one.

I’ve had a look at the Honley Quarry on UKC, it looks brill.
I’ll give it a go in the next few weeks and report back

Thanks for the pointer.
