Crag features

Lovely setting, sheltered and sunny; reasonable mid-grade trad routes and now a bunch of generally easier short sport climbs.

Access Advice

The ravens have not nested this year (2016) and the restriction has been lifted.

Northern Limestone : Yorkshire, Cumbria, Lancashire

Northern Limestone : Yorkshire, Cumbria, Lancashire covers some of the best limestone crags in the UK including the big three of Malham, Kilnsey and Gordale. Alongside these titans are numerous other destinations that offer both sport and trad climbing throughout the grades, ranging from the intimidating walls of Blue Scar and Trow Gill to the long lines of newly-developed low to mid-grade sport crags such as Moughton Nab and Giggleswick South. Trad climbing is also well catered for on the walls and escarpments at the likes of Trowbarrow Quarry, Twistleton Scar, Attermire Scar and Witches Quarry.

Out of print:
First bolt on "Come On (Sport)" (aka "Come on Come on) is loose, needs a spanner.

4th or 5th Bolt up, just before the break under the overhang on Paranoid Eyes has fallen off. Nut, washer and bolt unscrewed themselves from the wall, screw still intact in the wall. Just so you know. Its obvious when you get under the route.
