Kay Nest

North Yorkshire, ENGLAND

Climbs 73 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude 250m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
Large sandstone outcrop. Loads of ace bouldering at all grades and a few hard projects on the crag.

DON'T WALK UP TRIPSDALE AS IT'S PRIVATE LAND AND YOU'LL NARK THE FARMER.

Access notes
Update: Probably the best way in is by parking at the village hall in chop gate. Cross the road and follow the public right of way which joins the farm track and takes you up the hill and through William Beck Farm. This then turns into a footpath and takes you onto the moor top via 3 gates. Join a bridleway at a T junction as it goes south for 100m, this then turns east and takes you down into Tripsdale on a zig zag track.

Awful Crag. A very hard blank wall that needs freeing and a short, very hard arete are the only two routes worth mentioning. Lots of excellent Bouldering.
