Crag features

Few details but said to be "worth a detour if in the area".
Excellent for an evening's bouldering. Good traverses. Can be found in Yorkshire Gritstone guidebook.

Approach notes

Lies 2 mile south of Halifax. Go to the junction of the B roads at Greetland, take the B6113 for 200m and the crag is on the Left.

Access Advice

Climbers intermittently report the farmer at the top of the quarry discharges effluent down the quarry faces making climbing extremely unpleasant - if you observe this contact the BMC.
