Quarry Booking Etiquette


Due to the recent busyness of the quarries over the last few weeks, I would like to thank everyone who is now making a booking.

I understand that there is now some feedback saying the quarries are full when people try to book, but when they turn up, they find them at less than capacity.  



Can I please request that phone to cancel a booking.  If you have booked, but are not going to go, or you have overbooked, could you please phone the Hills Centre up and CANCEL your booking, or amend the numbers.  DEC are requesting this from all user groups.

The effectiveness of the booking system is only as good as the people using it, and this is the case for small groups as much as large ones. 

Most climbers will book on the day, and if you decide not to go, then by cancelling your booking, those people who can and do want to go will then get the opportunity to. 



Could I please also remind everyone to not only shut the gate, but also lock it, both going in and coming out.  This protects everyone’s interests (your valuables and noisy/disruptive undesirables), as well as allowing the booking system to work more effectively.

I trust that with the majority of people following the system, we will find that there is plenty of space in the quarry for all.



When making a booking, could you please also indicate the following to the Hills Centre:

  1. Will you be there all day, or just the morning/afternoon?

This will help share the number of people who are in there at any one time to 40 throughout the day, not just at its peak.

  1. Heya, the DEC has always been extremely nice and helpful when I talk to them about the gate codes. I am trying to call them and get the code for Strathams but the office is closed for stock taking today…
