Long Crag

Climbs 15 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude ? – Faces SW

Crag features
The stakes that used to be at the top of the crag have been removed, and there is some doubt as to whether the owners (Yorkshire Wildlife Trust) allow climbing. Setting up top ropes is therefore trickier than it used to be, bring a spare rope and you can use a combination of trees/fence posts on each side. Or solo if you're good enough - the crag is very steep and routes can feel hard for the grade.

Access notes
Good access from free Brockadale Nature Reserve car park on Leys Lane to the north of the crag. Take the footpath from the car park and turn left at the end, follow the path go through the gate and the top of the crag is on the right. The best descent is possible to continue through the next gate, pick a line down through the woods to the right, and follow a vague path back along the foot of the crag.
