Trollers Gill

North Yorkshire, ENGLAND

Climbs 69 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 300m a.s.l – Faces E

Crag features
Trollers Gill is a pleasant crag set in a remote dry valley that is often deserted. The gentle approach walk and convienent cafe add to the attraction of this out-of-the-way venue which has a good set of routes and one "sporty" classic to sort out any over-ambitious 7a leader. The rock is on the whole sound and provides sustained, fingery and technical lines linking short blank walls, slim grooves and small square-cut overhangs. This crag now has many more sport routes in the lower grades. Check the Leeds Wall web site for details

Access notes
The best approach is from the villages of Burnsall and Appletreewick. Drive through Appletreewick and turn right towards Skyreholme and Parcevall Hall. Turn left onto a no through road to Parcevall Hall and park on grass verge on a bend. Take the path signed to ÎGill Headsâ just before the small bridge (the cafe is just across the bridge) and follow this for about 10 minutes, keeping right where the path forks at a dry valley. Continue to the narrow gorge which is often full of dead kamikaze rabbits. The crag is beyond, on the left, where it opens out a little.

Great climbing especially on the main wall, but the midgys can very persistant if you didn't expect and prepare for them.
Jamie Currie - 01/Aug/13

For som reason I did the F5+ which is one of the easiest sport routes at the crag and maybe on Yorks Limestone. One of the worst routes I have ever done. 1 technical move to get started and then scrambing up loose rock to finish. Very Poor!

Barguest - I agree the traverse is the best part of the route. Also it is possible to make White Zone almost independent by bouldering the wall to the R of Barguest start and climbing from R end of juggy ledge to the cave, this is 6b.
