Keen to load up your harness with a full rack and tackle some slabby limestone?
As such, we would advise only well experienced trad climbers to lead (and belay) routes here for the time being, and to assess routes and anchors closely before committing. Opportunities for less experienced members to second routes may be more limited than normal.
All of the climbing at Fairy Cave is trad – with a variety of interesting routes ranging across the grades from VD up to E6. Please see UKC for more details.
Fairy Cave Quarry is approximately 1h30m drive from Southampton. Parking nearby can be somewhat limited as Limekiln Lane is quite narrow with a handful of wider spots for parking. Please share cars where possible and park responsibly – trucks and tractors use this road. If no roadside parking is available, please park down the hill and walk back up to the quarry entrance.
