The rock is gritstone (i.e. millstone grit). The climbing is good, though the starts of the routes tend to be rather tricky. The bouldering is also excellent (in fact most of the routes are just boulder problems with easy finishes) George.
Mr Pink 2 - 28/May/05

I would just like to add that even though I am no rock expert, Goldsborough Carr is not a gritstone crag. I mentioned a gritstone overhang but i failed to mention that the above rock is harder, thus there is an overhang. The lower portion (which only appears under the highest climbs) might not even be gritstone. Seasoned geologists might be able to determine what type of rock is seen both in my photo and the majority of the rest of the crag, but I can't. So please don't go expecting lots of gritstone action. I feel partly guilty for it. Also, there is more than just bouldering available. The climb in the photo is way too high for my liking. Also, there are lots of metal poles in the ground at the top of the crag for tying into. Most of the crag is south-facing but some is west facing and a little bit faces north. Parking can be done on the road to the north and a 10-minute walk across a bushy field separates you from the crag, which can be seen from the road.

Concerning the picture of James on Fiddler on the Roof To start this climb go to the back of the wall under the overhang. There is a rock which you can put your leg over and lock yourself in with your toe. From there, if you put your weight on this foot lock and walk your other leg up the wall you should be able to reach the first hold. Don't take your leg out of the lock until you get a good hold cos you'll swing out and probably fall 3 metres onto your face.

A mixture of very hard climbs or very easy climbs. Those routes which were beyond me were the ones which start 2 metres off the ground. We had to abseil down from the top in order to climb because we werent able to do the gritstone overhangs. The easier climbs were mostly short bouldering routes of about 4c-5a standard. There's plenty to do, it's fairly easy to get to and we were alone when we went midweek.
