Bridestones (West Yorkshire) West Yorkshire, ENGLAND
Climbs 134 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 410m a.s.l – Faces S
Excellent bouldering venue, with good landings. On top of a moor and hence exposed to weather (but also quick-drying). A quality venue with a unique feel, pebbles and slopers galore and some great sequences. Take care with the eroding rock.(I have used V grades and Font grades for all problems.) Still some hard lines to go up here...
Access from car park at Sportsman's Inn on the minor road across the moors between Burnley and Hebden Bridge. From the car park walk 200m towards Hebden Bridge, then use the public footpath to walk up to the trig point. The Bridestones are just a few metres to the S.
Not to be confused with the Bridestones in N Yorks.

What's the line opposite Nine (near Bridestone)? Good climbing protected by a tricky start.|

Some of the problems at the Bridestones are undergraded - for example there is a route called Tea Break or something on area G there. This route is graded 5a but probably 5c.
