Slate Quaries Access & Conservation


Carol on Looning the Tube, Dinorwig Quarries


The Dinorwig quarries are our local crag when we are at the hut. As some may be aware part of t quarry was closed for filming over the summer and Dali’s hole is becoming more and more popular. The owners of the quarries, First Hydro, have concerns about their liability.

The BMC requests:

Climbers are asked to avoid gathering in large groups at this very visible site [Dali’s Hole] and organised groups (club meets, youth groups, etc.) are requested to be particulary aware of the sensitivity of this site and the need to keep a low profile here.

You can read the full report on the BMC website here BMC – Access & Conservation.
