Shooter's Nab West Yorkshire, ENGLAND
Climbs 111 – Rocktype Grit (quarried) – Altitude 400m a.s.l – Faces N
A good little crag with a few distinctly good routes on nice crisp quarried grit. The main area is quite impressive, but the outlying rocks to the left have some hidden gems.
The new definitive guide is out now buy it!
The area right of the rostrum (the prominant prow) is now open access.
The back quarry is open friday evenings and 6 nominated days a year.
You can now park in the gun club car park (mon-sat)but make sure you leave a note in your window and park considerately. Do not park in the gun club on a Sunday as it is a shooting day.
Always check RAD for the latest information before you visit.

Ricochet Wall and Sweatyman are the best routes in the Huddersfield area and stand up to anything in the Peak.|

This is where it all started for me back in about 1974. Although only a small section feels properly crag like, this palce has lots of atmosphere and some good routes. A classic at what was VD but is now HS is Rifleman\'s Chimney (I used to do it as a multi pitch as we were using short polypropolene ropes!!!). Also recommnded is Sweatyman which was VS+ which inludes a stomach traverse. Not sure about access these days, but am about to re-visit.
