Gorple (aka Lower Gorple)West Yorkshire, ENGLAND
Climbs 65 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 370m a.s.l – Faces NW
Very close to Upper Gorple (which has some routes on it, rather than bouldering). "A charming and atmospheric bouldering destination, and a great place to get away from the crowds" - Alan Cameron-Duff. The rock will *not* bear wire brushing, so please don't. High, exposed, often cold despite sun, yet can feel sheltered.
