Clint Crags

Climbs 31 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 250m a.s.l – Faces W

Crag features
A collection of boulders and a massive quarry above Leighton Reservoir. The guide on the Leeds Wall website covers two of the natural bouldering sectors.

The Wall boulders are a nice safe venue for teams with small children in tow as the surrounding area is grassy and flat; reminiscent of the Burbage Valley in the Peak. The Optical Illusion boulders are unsuitable for kids due to the concealed drops and jumbled blocks, though there are some quality easier lines.

Tony Barley climbed eleven problems in the extensive quarry left of the venues described in the mini-guide and there is potential for hundreds of others. These details are released in Tony's memory with the full support of his family.

Access notes
Park considerately near the dam of Roundhill Reservoir (SE 153 773). There is a spot for a small car at the end of the dam; if you arenít first youíll have to walk a little further. Follow the obvious wide track in a North-Easterly direction. Pass several gates until the Wall boulders come into view. About 1 km.

Temporary access restrictions are posted on a sign at the head of the dam. The crags are on access land under current CRoW arrangements, but you have to cross some non-access land, so please stick to the paths.

N.B. Please do not approach from the dam of Leighton Reservoir. The warden is very friendly, but was clear that Yorkshire Water have had to close this approach due to public liability concerns.
