Rowantree Tor

North Yorkshire, ENGLAND

Climbs 45 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 300m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
Rowantree Tor (AKA The Incredible Boulders) are set in a fine position overlooking the upper section of Fosse Gill and at the end of Rowantree Crag Ridge, the area consist of a little tor and an edge/boulders, downhill towards the stream.

The rock is of high quality and its architecture is interesting, providing a fine bunch of steady-away problems.

Visited by Jon Pearson and Fran Holland some time ago and a handfull of problems recorded on yorkshire grit.com. Recently further explored.

Access notes
Approach as for Far Crag from the Yorke’s Folly (Guisecliff) parking. Follow the path up to the stile in the wall and on towards the edge of the moor then contour using indistinct tracks. By far the easiest is a more direct approach is along the shooting track from the High Crag parking though, if shooting parties are around, this may be best avoided to steer clear of disturbance. A third alternative is from the other side of the valley.
