Crag features

Very good low-mid grade bouldering and short solos. There are two main sectors and around 50 problems. The crag has been described by Malcolm Townsley who undoubtedly developed new lines for the new grit guide. Older problems appeared in earlier versions and White Crag has been climbed on for many a year

Approach notes

No known access problems.
From ample parking directly below the left end, cross the stile and wall into the field below the crag and walk up passing the Small White and Prow Boulders on the way.

Not on access land so please respect the surrounding farmland and keep groups small. If the boulders over to the right and above the farm are visited please do so in such a way that no disturbance is created.

Chapter 4 I think

Great problems and well worth a trip if your local! Couldn't find it in the new gritstone guide though?
