Middle Ridge © phleppy

Crag features

This very small crag is situated in the rosedale valley & is no more than 6 metres in height with mostly good landings, it has some good rock & is primarily a bouldering venue. Heathery on some finishes.

Railway Buttress is included on this crag although it is up on the main west side of the valley about 300m away.

Approach notes

It`s on open access land & is reached in 20mins. Park at blakey junction & head east down into the valley on a faint path which meets a large track, turn right onto this then come of it at a corner & head south straight over the moor on sheep tracks where the crag is about 5 minutes across passing large bouldrs on the way.

For Railway Buttress at blakey junction follow the rail path south where Middle Ridge will be visible after 10 minutes or so down on your left, carry on a further 300metres or so along a straight piece of track until it bears right where just below the track rocks will be visible. There is possibly more routes/problems dotted about the area.
