Crag features

Above the bustling town of Settle is an area of unusual limestone out-croppings that are collectively known as the Attermire crags. The landscape is fairly stark but on a good day is a lovely place to climb and the crags are popular on long evenings in summer. The majority of the climbs on the main limestone edge at Attermire are quite short but pack in the moves. The rock and protection is generally very good on the pitches described here and the lines are strong. The more distant Victoria Cave is a sport climbing crag that is in complete contrast to the main area with long steep and intimidating lines.

Guidebooks

Northern Limestone : Yorkshire, Cumbria, Lancashire

Northern Limestone : Yorkshire, Cumbria, Lancashire covers some of the best limestone crags in the UK including the big three of Malham, Kilnsey and Gordale. Alongside these titans are numerous other destinations that offer both sport and trad climbing throughout the grades, ranging from the intimidating walls of Blue Scar and Trow Gill to the long lines of newly-developed low to mid-grade sport crags such as Moughton Nab and Giggleswick South. Trad climbing is also well catered for on the walls and escarpments at the likes of Trowbarrow Quarry, Twistleton Scar, Attermire Scar and Witches Quarry.
