Crag features

This is really two crags; the quarry (which has a number of faces)and Skyline Buttress, a natural crag (some of which overlook the quarry)that is in the wood up and to the left.

Both crags are approached from the ample parking place below the quarry.

Approach to Skyline is through the woods following a steep path up the left edge of the left quarry.

Approach notes

It should be assumed both are covered by the same bird ban at certain times of the year (see BMC RAD)

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.
