Good evening all. just going thorough the North of England Rock Climbs guide & was wondering if it's still possible to access the above crag.

I'm no longer based in the north but going home next week & thought it may be a nice little venture?

Also if it's still possible to climb there does anyone know what condition it's in?

Andy help/advice would be appreciated.

Andy.

The Hoff has been banned for a number of years now. Access to Kings Meaburn is fine but the crag isn't great.

If you have a partner there is a bolted crag in Appleby, Coudy Rock.

Coudy Rock

It's in as Jubilee Bridge Quarry in the Stew Wilson guide

Wash yer chops out. There's a few good routes to go at around VS-E2 and it's in a very idyllic setting. Well worth a visit. Lots of nettles and undergrowth round the base of the crag this time of year unless someone has cut it back though.

The nettles and brambles are managed by the crag, it is self gardening. Chunks of it regularly fall off flatten g the vegetation. Such is the quality.

I worked with a relative of the landowner - apparently his lawyers insisted on the ban to avoid liability rather than the landowner suddenly deciding himself
