Far Crag

Climbs 55 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 279m a.s.l – Faces W

Crag features
A fine little bouldering area, close to the road but in a secluded location. Two great little walls and some boulders provide the fun. Very likely to have been climbed on in the past but nothing recorded until recently.

The rock quality is generally excellent - rough, clean, solid grit.

Landings are flat and grassy.

The surrounding blocks provide shelter.


Access notes
From the Guisecliff/Nought Bank parking area follow the path west for 100m then uphill to the wall. Note, the signpost indicates a very indistinct alternative so don't try to go up from the gate as indicated.

Once at the wall, stay on the same side and follow it until overlooking the valley.

The main area boulders are below.

Over the wall are Round Boulder and others, gained from above. Please use the stile
