Wolfhole Crag

Lancashire, ENGLAND

Climbs 20 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 527m a.s.l – Faces SE

Crag features
The most remote gritstone outcrop in the world! 4 miles and 1.5 hours walk from the car. All routes are around 30ft high and predominantly solos. Standout routes are the harder ones, all exquisitely technical: 1921 Committee (E4 6b), Global Terrorism (E6 6b/c), and the most out of the way E7 on grit, Remote Control (E7 6c). Don't forget the way back... [Neil Kershaw]

The crag now also features a small bouldering to circuit, to complement the routes. Whilst not massive in number the problems are all exceedingly good. The circuit also features potentially the furthest 8A from the road in Britain.

Access notes

Approach from the hamlet of Tarnbrook, taking the bridleway at the east end of the hamlet (i.e. not the one to Thorn Crag). Walk 4 km up the bridleway/track (which has in recent years been extended to reach the apex of the hill) to a gate in a fence dissecting the track. Turn right and follow the fence (which after a way becomes a wall) until the crag is reached - a further 1.5 km. Access only along access strips and outside of shooting season.
