Cheesewring Quarry

Carved out of the compact granite of Bodmin Moor, Cheesewring Quarry has for decades been one of Cornish climbing's forcing grounds. Its development has kept up with the grades of nearby Devon's sport climbs and has provided a good spread of tough trad pitches that compliment those of Cornwall's sea-cliffs. The strange gravity-defying Cheesewring itself peers down over the edge of the quarry, taking in the view of the walls that for the first time visitor can be a bit of a revelation, being both extensive and up to around 30m in height. The style of the climbing is often very specific, the nature of the quarried rock giving little in the way of intermediate holds that might take the sting out of the moves. As a consequence the climbing feels tougher that on the natural granite in the region. Nevertheless, the climbs are excellent and the spread of both trad and sport climbs is such that most tastes will be catered for.
