This is the prominent crag above the A590 between High Newton and Newby Bridge. A reasonable selection of single pitch routes up to about 20m in length on clean, fast drying Silurian slate (actually Siltstone). Recommended: Moose (HS 4a); The V (VS 4c)
Warning: Whitestone Allotment is known locally as being very bad for bracken ticks. Take care with leaving clothing on the ground or even lounging around.
Now the Newton by pass is built, there is no lay-by opposite. There is a convenient stretch of former road on the NE (crag) side of road accessed from the Staveley-in-Cartmel road about 200m NW of the end of the dual carriageway. Incidentally, the correct name for the crag is Whitestone not Whitestones.
