Craig Smith on a new route near Hebden Bridge this weekend (22nd July). Climbed ground up and graded XS. © Michael Ryan

Crag features

Liable to hold lichen; best after a dry spell. Up to 70ft high but exposure makes it feel bigger. Fun for sub-E1 leaders - but not a lot.

Approach notes

From Todmorden join the A646 towards Hebden Bridge. After 3.7mi, just before going under a railway, the crags are visible across the canal. Take the first R over the canal; a footpath leads to the bridge.

Is the crag next to horsehold road 'passing place' part of horsehold scout or a seperate crag?

An unjustly neglected crag. Permanently green, but the rock's so rough this makes little difference. Dries rapidly after rain.
