Roseberry ToppingNorth Yorkshire, ENGLAND
Climbs 29 – Rocktype Sandstone (soft) – Altitude 320m a.s.l – Faces SW
Luke Hunt, march 09
This large sandstone outcrop is on the famous hill overlooking teeside. The routes are long for the area and certainly have a big feel to them. The quality of the rock varies considerably. The main face has variable quality rock. The two cracks on the left hand end are well worth a look (one HVS 5a, the other E1 5b). The best route at the crag takes the line directly up the main face. Good quality solid climbing.
There are some lovely micro routes on high quality moors sandstone at the right hand end.
Not in the 2003 North East England guide, due to the poor quality of the rock (half the routes from the previous guide have since fallen down!.
