Crag features

Note these are NOT the same Bridestones as in West Yorkshire
A series of boulders/pinnacles and small very steep edges composed of soft sandstone. The grades vary from sandbags to pushovers. Recommended: Strawberry Fields (4c), Sambo Pati (5a), Grades range from font 2 - font 7a and provide a variety of holds such as slopers, pockets, jugs and the odd crimp or pinch. They face all directions so there is always some climbs in the sun. The butress section can be best enjoyed on a sunny evening. Note, after a certain amount of wet weather, holds becom friable. The easiest entry is by the dalby toll road although by car it now cost £7 unless you have the dalby pass, other entries can be found from the pickering to whitby road anywhere between lockton and saltersgate.

Approach notes

Current toll is £7 for cars!

Guidebooks

Quick visit, good fun and lovely area, but holds were very very sandy and the rock is somewhat friable.

A better place to park is go past the saltersgate car park just over 2 miles & take a dodgy left turn onto david lane, follow the main road going past a few farms until you reach 2 grain storage units on the left & park there, the walk is pleasent & takes about 25 minutes to reach the low brdestones...enjoy!

park at Saltergate car park off the Pickering - Whitby road (for free) then walk or bike SE for 2.5km to the edge of Dalby forest then walk down a footpath for 1.4km which follows the woods until there is a right turn which cuts across a small beck with trees around it. This takes you to the Northernmost High Bridestones.
