Crag features
Newton dale is some what of a comical crag which has seen development over the last few months. The crags have apparently been climbed on before and are mentioned in the 1985 north york moors guide book. The guide simply states 'Routes have been recorded on these extensive crags, however due to the unstable nature of the rock they are not recomended. It is worth mentioning that this not a serious crag as such and routes should be climbed meerly for their comical value or for a bit of fun. Do not arrive at the crag expecting stanage in a wood. Although the crag is very extensive, the rock is poor in quality. However, when attempting any of the routes hear, please be aware that there is a high chance of death. The rock brakes and large blocks fall on your head. (routes are really only receomended for pickering woods aficionados.) One thing is for sure though, the crag shall leave you with great memories of triamph, and the feeling that you have just risked your life.

**Staring** Please note that staring is given for comedy value and/or positions on the routes.

Excellent stuff, I've meant to visit since reading about it in the 1960 guide a few years ago but never made the effort! That book said something like, the cliffs were extensive, but unsuitable for climbing...
