Finally got round to visiting this place at the weekend, due to morning rain on sunday curtailing a much bigger day out. Surprisingly good with some pleasant short bouldering and some good quarry routes between the more overgrown lines. I can't figure out which route is what yet but directly below the cricket ground there is a cleaner 10m quarry with some yellow fringed green graffitti at the base and the VS straight up the wall from that was a peach. Nice HS just right as well heading up to the arete from its left.

You can be at the base of a climb 5 minutes after leaving junction 24 on the M62, so ideal for a quick visit. NNW facing so shady in the summer and gets the evening sun.

Any idea if these and the other kirklees crags are going to be included in the Yorkshire grit Vol 2 book? Well served as they are on the Kirklees climbing site it would be nice to not have to take folders of printouts to the crag!

In reply to Offwidth: Nice innit, I did a script to the place for the YG v2, but then Robin found a far more historically interesting one to use. It'll be worth waiting for.

Quite a few of the Kirklees crags will be in the Yorkshire Grit Vol 2 book. Holmfirth, Honley Quarry etc.

Lindley Moor is on the list to be covered on http://www.kirkleesclimbing.co.uk hopefully should be on the site later in the year with the usual printable guide etc.

Is that the Wappy Spring guide? I have that scanned if anyone is interested?

I use to climb with Dave Hanner when we were at the Poly in the 80s, I believe he wrote a guide to Lindley Moor, and other local esoterica. I've not been in contact since about 1989 though he might lurk on here. If he does it could be worth getting hold of his guide to compare

Went back to try the bouldering on Sunday...not that extensive but quite good.... fun stuff to mid V grades. Someone has cleaned this recently so its in good nick. All just 50m below cricket pitch car park ideal for a quick evening hit.
