/ Yorkshire grit trad for hot days
Somewhere shaded or Northerly facing to keep the heat down.
Somewhere towards the Yorkshire Dales direction
Plenty of stuff to go at between VS and E1/E2
Any ideas? I'm struggling!
Does Eavestone fit the bill?
Come on Sam, lets use our imaginations a bit. I'm a bit tired of those crags. Doesn't Simon's Seat face away from the sun though?
Rylstone if you are an early starter, Earl Crag if not. Caley if you are short of time.
I know its very fussy but the guy I'm going with and I have been to Rylstone together several times and we'd rather have a change of scene. I know I know, having cake and eating it. Any other suggestions?
Grit in this heat? Get on to the mountain crags.
If you must then Simon's Seat has stuff in and out of the shade. Earl Crag faces north but is quite a bit lower.
I'd head to the Lakes.
Lakes next weekend innit. Cheers Liz.
Guisecliff looks perfect. I will see what my mate says, thanks folks.

Unless it has changed going to Guisecliff will be wasting a day! Comet Wall and North Wall Eliminate are/were good but most of the crag has always been 'orrid.
I suggest Rylstone as didn't mention it in your original query - how's a man to know?
My first thoughts :) You'll usually find something in the shade at Brimham Rocks and as said prior Simons Seat and possibly Lords Seat may be a good option.
Eavestone was perfect and an incredibly impressive crag. It like Brimham but EVERYTHING about it is better. Less crowds, nicer rock, nice setting, you don't get lost all the time, less horrific jamming cracks. I could go on.
I would've been worried Eavestone might've been too sheltered and possibly a bit humid with all the trees, but glad to hear it was okay. It is indeed a lovely crag. Great if it's colder and there's a bitter wind blowing at Brimham.
I was at Earl Crag on Friday and it was great with a breeze. Friction felt pretty good, to be honest! It's been so dry lately the rock's not remotely sweaty.
