White Crag

Climbs 66 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 350m a.s.l – Faces W

Crag features
Very good low-mid grade bouldering and short solos. There are two main sectors and around 50 problems. The crag has been described by Malcolm Townsley who undoubtedly developed new lines for the new grit guide. Older problems appeared in earlier versions and White Crag has been climbed on for many a year

Access notes
No known access problems.

From ample parking directly below the left end, cross the stile and wall into the field below the crag and walk up passing the Small White and Prow Boulders on the way.

Not on access land so please respect the surrounding farmland and keep groups small. The boulders over to the right and above the farm are to be avoided (they are poor anyway).

Great problems and well worth a trip if your local! Couldn't find it in the new gritstone guide though?
