Crag features

An extensive collection of boulders that are high and exposed – real Wild Bouldering (they were first brought to prominence by that publication WB in script).The rock is well- featured and of high quality though some faces may be green in winter.  That said it is usually possible to find some shelter and have a good session here even then.  It is also a nice place for children with flat ground and some exciting gullies to explore.  The landings are mostly great and these are “proper” free-standing boulders. NO DOGS

Approach notes

Park carefully on the B6265 near the Brimham turning and take the tarmac road (which is a footpath, although not signed as such) towards Smaden Head Farm.   Pass the farm and keep going until along the track beside a wall until this runs into another wall – at this point turn left (on access land by this point) and follow the wall to the rocks. 25 minutes. The boulders divide in a southern bay and a northern area which is accessed by the gate.

 

The southern half of the boulders are on access land while the northern blocks are not There have been trees planted around the boulders – please avoid any damage to these.  This is also an active shooting moor; check Natural England site before a visit.


The most recent OS map shows that South of the wall is access land but North of the wall is NOT!
