Crag features

Not often in good condition due to its northerly aspect and altitude; definitely a summer crag. Recommended: Airlift (S), Ahab (HS), Forest Face (HS), Satchmo (E2), Fever Pitch (E2), Stratagem (E4/5).

Approach notes

Park at the top of Hasty Bank on the B1257 around 3 miles south of Broughton.

Take the forestry track leading up and west for 20 minutes until the crag appears on the left. Cross the stile and up the hillside to the crag.

Guidebooks

Impressive looking crag that could do with a bit more attention! I was there today and the general condition of the crag is quite good but it was suffering from a bit of seepage due to rain earlier in the week and we didn't fancy doing too much on wet, slimy rock. Top outs seem to be quite sketchy with the crags almost buried in the turf at the top of the crag which equals seepage and grassy sketchy top outs. Could also benefit from some belay stakes at the top due to limited belay options in places! HOWEVER, all this would be solved by more climbers so get out and enjoy some of the best routes in the NYMs

Signs currently asking people not to use the forestry track due to erosion. In this weather it's a muddy nightmare anyway, so heading along the top via the Cleveland Way is the best option at the moment.

Contrary to what the guidebook says, Waterslide (HS 4b) is not cleaner and better than it looks, it is much dirtier and just as bad. The optional traversing finish almost makes it worthwhile though.
