Shibden Glen

West Yorkshire, ENGLAND

Climbs 56 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 237m a.s.l – Faces W

Crag features
Some Great hand and fist jams, great for everyone from beginners to advanced, from nice jugs to stupidly small crimps, some thing for everyones needs, nice rural setting away from the road with excellent views. I have just found this crag so is unknown to anyone yet ( i think), but i believe it could be one of Yorkshires biggest secrets.

02/06/2011 - Would be an excellent spot but local farms etc have started filling the area with horse poo. Doesn't smell but most of the climbs can not be done now.

Access notes
Find Northowram quarry which is on Howes Lane, Follow the road down until you see a wooden bench on the right hand side, follow the path along the side of the bench and past the big wall, at the fork in the path take the left hand side and keep on until the path ends and dips down next to the outcrop, behold the great gritstone of Shibden.
