With the new Lancashire guide in the final stages, I was informed of a small quarry that had a couple of good lines left to do. Watty Quarry was the place, and a scratty little thing it is too. When I first walked up to, I thought I must be at the wrong place. However, after a closer inspection, it was it. Pretty disappointed, I thought I'd look at the lines whilst I was there.
My knowledge of the proposed routes was very limited. So I picked out what looked to be best and tried them. The left hand line on the steep face made sense to be a straight up route with no deviations. This made it a bold little number, with a tricky move highish and bad landing. After one flash on a rope and clean I soloed it to give Watt the #&#& E3 5c. The line to the right made sense to go up through the low roof before passing the second on it's left. A further tricky move to the arete led to an easy finish. Despite having a cam low down, the tricky moves higher up would not be protected and the landing is pretty bad. Again one quick top rope and I soloed the route to give Watt a Load of #&$@ E5 6a.
Despite the look of the venue the climbing was quite good. That said, it would only really be of interest to a local. I'd be surprised if these routes ever see a repeat.
