Glaisdale Head Boulders

Climbs 25 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude 300m a.s.l – Faces NW

Crag features
A fine collection of boulders that for years we're hidden by a small plantation. The rock is good solid sandstone and problems can reach a height of 4m. A mat is required for some problems as there are some bad landings but on the whole they're good flat heathery landings, gets the afternoon sun. Information will be in the new bouldering guide for the area out sometime late 2014.

Access notes
Open Access moorland, park on the main moor road at a large lay by then follow a faint path on the right of some moor posts, this should bring you out above the boulders. No camping.
