Crag features

A small natural crag and a couple of quarries. Sections of the crag are often damp. Recommended routes: Deviation (4c), Sundancer (5c), First of Many (5b).

Approach notes

From the car park at the col,go through the gate and follow the Cleavland Way South along a wide forestry track to the monument. The Potters Quarry is around 100m to the right (as you approach)(W)of the monument near a stone gate, Right Little Potters Quarry is 150m to the right(S) of this, Easby View Quarry is a further 300m down and R(SE)of this. Cook's Crag is through the stone wall approx 400m to the south East of the monument. There is a small quarry 5 mins walk from the car park (Cockshaw Hill) gain access by following a track 100m west of the cattle grid in the car park.

Allthough Captain Cooks crags have no Topo for bouldering on the following site YET!, it does highlight the position of the crags on a map and offer some inspiration for bouldering close by: http://www.betaguides.com/index.php?country=england
