/ Cheedale, Embankment gritstone ramps
Please do not post other options, at the moment I am just interested in this specific venue.
They were clean in spring. No idea about bolts, sorry.
We took our nearly three year old son old top roping there this summer. They were excellent as he was able to climb them really quite easily. We chose the middle of the ramps as it looked the most used (judging by the worn grass at the bottom). There weren't any bolts but there was a huge iron spike hammered in the top between the blocks. It wobbled slightly but seemed very solid. I looked across at the ramp nearer the embankment sector and there are bolts at the top of this on the rock face. This ramp is much bigger and really unnecessarily big for our purposes.
Really? I would have thought something realistic would have been more inspiring.
