Ash Head

Climbs 43 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 371m a.s.l – Faces NW

Crag features
A remote crag high on Masham Moor with some good routes up to 10m and some recently developed bouldering. Don't be put off by the shooting lodges, this is a good crag & can be combined with sypeland or Round Hill Boulders. The crag stays mostly clean although some of the boulder problems don't get the traffic they probably deserve and are suffering a bit from lichen.

Access notes
Open access land. Several ways in, ranging from 30 minutes to 1 hour. Probably best to avoid in shooting season.
