/ Simonside bouldering
There are some excellent problems spread over a large area. You can work your way round so that you can take in several venues i.e. Potts buttress, Old stell crag and Dove crag, or just head for Ravensheugh taking in some problems at simonside. Some problems can be a liitle gritty but if you enjoy peaceful senic bouldering its a grand day out.
Thanks for that. I am just interested to know how other people have experienced it. Went there yesterday..a lovely day but very windy and quite a long walk in not so great with big bouldering mats! Maybe we just went on the wrong day ...very spread out indeed and it doesn't look like much bouldering goes on there at all, quite a lot of lichenous rock and no sign of much activity. The guide suggested you could do a circuit ....I wonder what time you would need to start out to get anything done!! It's a beautiful location as you say but not sure we'll be racing back any time soon.
