Climbs 96 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 470m a.s.l – Faces W

Crag features
Right in the heart of Bronte country. Not much in the HVS range, but plenty for the low-grade E climber. Aspect means it can be green, but pleasant in the summer.

Lots of nice intersting bouldering scattered all arond, potentail for some new harder lines possibly.

Access notes
Park at The White House pub as for Cow's Mouth Quarry, the path towards Blackstone edge is just on the other side of the road.

Decent bouldering circuit over three areas. Not much above 7a but a complete mixbag of climbs around 6a-6c mark.

Some superb problems here. You just need to hunt them out. Give it 48 hours to dry after rain in Winter. An excellent venue.
