Crag features

A collection of large boulders in the valley above Hardcastle Crags in the Calderdale.

The boulders are generally a little broken, however there are a number of worthwhile bouldering problems.

They are in a sunny location and generally sheltered from the wind in winter, but can get overgrown with bracken in the summer.

Also they are conveniently located to the Pack Horse Inn!

Approach notes

No known access issues.

Please note that the Yorkshire Gritstone map reference is incorrect (which hopefully should be obvious from the guidebook description!). Map ref should be SD956313.
