Hi I've recently got my other half into climbing and want to take her out on a hillwalk with a visit to a crag to do some climbing on the way round. Does anyone have any good ideas? Ideally it would be in the dales and reachable by train as we don't drive(so around the 3 peaks area would be ideal) and preferably somewhere I can set up a top rope easily.

Thanks in advance

red pencil pen-y-gent is perhaps the obvious choice

or Ropbin Proctors and a walk up Ingleborough

In reply to yorkshiresherpa: Possibly a linear walk from Clapham to Settle taking in Pot Scar or Robin Proctors or Oxenber. Or settle and Attermire. Depends how much walking and how much climbing you want to do, but I would be very careful of anchors at Attermire.

Simons Seat? The Barden Moor Edges (Crookrise/Rylstone/Rolling Gate - Presidents and Dental Slab on Rylstone are excellent routes - one's a diff, the other a severe, IIRC). Great Whernside is good for bouldering.

How about Bentham - Ingleton - half the waterfalls walk - climb at Twistleton - Whernside - Ribblehead?
