Harden Crag

West Yorkshire, ENGLAND

Climbs 15 – Rocktype Grit (quarried) – Altitude 200m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
A very minor crag of quarried gritstone containing 15 boulder problems, 2 of which are very good indeed. Grades range from Font 4- Font 7a. Landings are flat, but a mat is useful due to the height of some of the problems (4-6m). The rock is generally of reasonable quality but could do with some traffic / cleaning of topouts.

The surrounding is peaceful and consists of unspoilt woodland with plenty of bilberry plants should the climbing not be to your taste.

Please note that the boulder problems were climbed after a 2 week dry spell in the middle of summer and this is probably the best time to appreciate the venue.

Access notes
On open access land frequented by dog walkers. From Harden drive up the steep and winding Keighley Road for approx 1km to a small rectangular car park on the left. Follow the path for ~100m to a kissing gate. Here is a rock with 5 small boulder problems. Take the path leftwards and continue down-hill now within woodland for approximately 200m to another path. Again take the left fork and continue for about 50m until the crag is found. If struggling then locate the dry stone wall and continue to the bottom (SW) corner of the field. The crag can be seen from here.

worthwhile local venue. evidence of some pretty enthusiastic brushing/tick marks though - doesn't seem necessary.

Three good lines make it a worthwhile venue for the local enthusiast. Dry spells best. Easily combined with other esoterica.
