/ Crampon Damage At Garfit Quarry And The Wainstones, NYM
Winter climbing has its place on the North York Moors, but as it damages the sandstone a lot quicker than rock climbing people generally climb on the outcrops where limited rock climbing occurs.
Cringle Moor offers very good mixed and ice routes and Landslip has been climbed on for a long time in summer and winter. The Latter is less than a quarter of a mile away from Garfit Quarry and offers better mixed stuff.
We all have a right to use the hills, but Crampons and good soft sedimentary routes aren't a sustainable mix. Thanks.
Nice composition. +1
Walkers presumably? Many people think that crampons are compulsory for hill walking as soon as the first snowflake settles.
