14th June 2014 - an accident when a climber pulled a large area of rock off 5m up Town Hall Corner. Bolts unaffected, but take care and check out the route before using it with beginners.

Enjoyed my visit to this crag. Easy to get to, convenient for the cafes of Settle. The climbing was a little worrying at times due to some loose rock, but the bolts add an element of reassurance. A good place to remember your helmet, especially whilst belaying.

Great crag. Well bolted.

Good day out - great value crag given how accessible it is. Some small loose rock, but no different to Giggleswick. Good rock from around 8/9 onwards, but the easier stuff would be perfect for first leads.

Climbed there this weekend on routes up to 6b. Some alright routes, some loose rock, but not a deathtrap. Not a place to dick about though

The easier routes are virtually all poor. A loose and potentially dangerous venue.
Bulls Crack - 13/May/10

5min walk (if that) from town centre carparking - Didnt manage to climb as got rained off (good tea shops in settle though!), but routes in general looked pretty good - the steeper lines 13-20 suffer a little seepage, but all other routes dry quickly will definately be back here before it gets too polished but more traffic will help clean the rock on the lower grades (lines 1-8)

Great winter venue I think gets full sun and is reasonable sheltered. lower greade routes are not great - the 6C's and above are on the best rock.
