Crowden Castles

Climbs 12 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 450m a.s.l – Faces W

Crag features
Dartmooresque tors nicely situated at the head of Great Crowden brook. They offer a few short routes, a great sense of isolation and a good bivvy cave. Good quality moorland grit with scratchy rock, lichen and no lines of polish or chalk!

Access notes
Easiest access would be from the pennine way at the head of Crowden brook. Going direct up the east bank via Bareholme is a bit masochistic. Park at Crowden YHA
