An unusually high concentration of good VS routes for the Lancashire guidebook area
National Trust - no problems
|Excellent location, catches the sun in afternoon and evening. Good rock with very little signs of polish, easy access from A62.
As others have mentioned it's windy, even on hot days. Also must hold the record for most sheep droppings per square foot. Some of the routes may be a bit undergraded,(more so than Almscliff), so watch out.|

|Crackin' crag, easy access, good grit both natural and quarried. Excellent evening crag, quick run up the hill and away you go. Nice soloing, good landings !!! Windy but thats good because when surrounding crags are wet Pule Hill tends to be dry..Lots of star'd routes, evenings craggin', nice views, few pints at Carriage House pub afterwards, a good gritstone evening!! |

|Now if I weasn't an adopted Geordie I'd be offended. Pule Hill is Yorkshire Territory, Huddersfield to be exact (born and bred there).
Some good climbing if you're not looking for anything too extreme. Protection on most routes is good (try left and right unconquerables and Scott's wall). Get's a bit windy on top so take a fleece.
Access is excellent, park at bottom of crag, 10 min walk on footpath to faces (steep hill, good for scrambling up too).
Usually a few climbers there, not many groups, nice and isolated. Watch out for dead sheep in the belay areas!
Oh and its windy on the top!|
