Moorhill Quarry, Newry Sun Jul 3rd

July 3, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

Forecast looking OK for Sunday so I am proposing a trip to Newry – short drive up M1; easy walk in and loads of nice routes. Think Dalkey with more protection available. Descent to base of routes by abseil or by 5 min walk. All single pitch and beginner friendly (though dont bring sandals – occasional glass at quarry floor)

There is a good description at


and a downloadable pdf at

  1. Will need a climb partner at Moorhill sun 3 july .
    Happier seconding but can lead the easier grades in Moorehill.
    I will take all gear and 2 ropes as live nearby in Dundalk.

  2. I really enjoyed the climbing in Moorhill. Recommend bringing a rope bag to protect ropes on the ground, lots of metal and glass debris in places. Also recommend long trousers and long sleeves to avoid Giant Hog weed and other plants/weeds when accessing routes. Well worth the trip.

    Thanks again Ger
