Woodhouse Scar

Climbs 217 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 175m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
Outcrop approx. 250m long. A good contrast of routes and problems. Some routes are green although many of the buttresses have a solid feel on sound rock. Clingen (E2 5c) and Twin Cracks (VS 4b) are excellent along with a good number of HVS routes for those interested in that grade. [Peter Fuggle]

Usual guidebook conflicts for the Bouldering.

TC = Total Climbing

CD = Cameron Duff (Rockfax)

Access notes
No access problems. A road is literally at the top of the crag. (Albert Promenade, near Wainhouse Tower, Halifax.)

Bollards across Rocks Road/Albert Promenade junction and also across Albert Promenade itself near Rocks Road.
