Ingleby Boulders

Climbs 138 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude 234m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
Many problems covering a huge area of hillside below Greenhow Bank on some of the best rock on the North York Moors. Most of the bouldering is situated on boulders that lie beneath the main crag but there are also other boulders in the forest and above the forest running north and some just above the incline. Can easily be combined with routes up on the main crag. Classics include: Pleasant arête (5+), It's Just a Ride (6a), Mono Wall (6c), Waylander (6c), No Prisoners (6c), Drill Sergeant (6c+) and Sleepy Hollow (7c+).

Much of the bouldering requires a walk of up to 50 minutes but there are several boulders which lie less than 30 minutes from the car if using the main parking at Bank Foot.

Forest operations have now finished and the boulders of 'Dave' and Insidious are now out of the woods and getting plenty of sun. There are plans for more felling in future.

Since the development of the Incline Boulders the area has become overgrown making the paths difficult to find. Currently if you want to go from the Mono Block to The Mushroom there is a new slight path which goes straight past Mono Wall, up over some boulders and up through where there has been no new tree growth. There is also a slight path going up from The Mushroom to the fence.

Approach notes
Park at a large lay-by at the small farm/village of Bank Foot. Please do not drive down the road as it is private. The incline below the crag is reached after about 45 minutes walk although a mostly flat bike ride significantly reduces the time to the incline. The boulders in the forest can be reached in half an hour or so, some are in light woodland and dry quickly but some need several days of dry weather before a visit is recommended. Alternatively you can follow the road past Park Nab up onto the moor to limited parking just before a sharp bend as the road drops into Baysdale, avoid parking on the bend itself as the road is often used by lorries from tree felling. Take the main track across the moor and drop down onto the boulders which takes about 30 minutes.
