Ali launching into the crux of the excellent Joe Cool (E2 5c), Ogden Clough, Yorkshire © Jamie Moss
A small natural edge on the lip of the moor. The rock has many prominent horizontal breaks, sometimes a long way apart. The routes are generally soloable, though some have bad or steep landings. Belays can be poor.
Best route: Joe Cool E2. [Bob Wightman]
A fantastic little crag. But be warned - on nearly all the routes the top-outs are extremely rounded and in some cases are the crux (e.g. on Linus, E3). [Jamie Moss]
From the A629 Keighley- Halifax rd, turn up past the Causeway Foot Inn to park by Ogden Water. Take the path to the right of the woods, this leads onto the moor. Follow the track along the edge of the clough and heading for the windmill farm. Just as the clough begins to disappear the crag lies beneath the path. About 20mins.
|Not a bad place for an evening of soloing, although some routes are quite bold with bad landings. Probably worth a visit but not regular trips.|
