Camp Hill

Climbs 200 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude 360m a.s.l – Faces W

Crag features
Great rock in a perfect setting. The routes on the right-hand butresses are the epitome of moorland climbing- short and perfectly formed. The routes on the main buttress are larger and more intimidating, but still offer superb positions. It's quite easy to fall in love with this place.

Loads of bouldering to be done, with most of it not recorded here.

Approach notes
Too far away from western culture to upset anybody.

Great crag for technical development. Lovely setting too.
Franco Cookson - 20/Apr/13
In fact a quality moors crag! In a great condition this time of year too! The moors' answer to a small gritstone outcrop? If it's windy, head down to clemitts for some exellent bouldering. Must do routes are Cling wrap, Ace of winds and tempest.

Good crag, with some great bouldering that has started to get popular again. More details on this crag here:

A really nice setting. Best routes are HVS and above. good routes include cling wrap, tempest and ace of winds. some routes might be stiff for the grade if you havent been anniciated. but the butresses have some exelent features. there is also a lot of potential for development of the bouldering. can combine with a boulder at clemmits or stormy hall.

A great little crag to spend an afternoon/evening, or combine it with Clemitt's for a full day out! Plenty to do for all, although the majority of the 'bigger' routes are HVS+ Worth a visit if your looking for somewhere new in North Yorkshire.
