Dib Scar

Climbs 47 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 250m a.s.l – Faces S

Crag features
The horseshoe-shaped cove of Dib Scar lies hidden across the wide dale from its illustrious neighbour Kilnsey. Dib only has a few routes but the quality is high and the crag is worth a visit if the best has been sampled elsewhere, or a bit of quiet is desired. The left-hand and central section of the crag is extremely steep and has the best rock and routes. The main central overhang has yet to be breached directly, although it is probably a project more suited to a bouldering approach being only a few metres of the ground. The right-hand section has less-steep rock and gives some reasonable easier traditional and sport pitches.

Access notes
Approach from the village of Conistone which is situated across the valley from the B6160 which goes from Threshfield to Kilnsey. Drive towards Kilnsey but turn right to Conistone just before you reach Kilnsey. Park opposite the Church in Conistone taking care not to block any exits. Walk 50m down the road and find the footpath to Grassington on the left. Follow this gently uphill for about 20 minutes. After the 4th gate, the track levels out and branches. Keep right and contour around until the bowl of Dib Scar appears on the right.
