Crag features

A nice small crag with fantastic view of Holmfirth. It is often in condition when other local crags are not.

Thanks to lots of effort from Carl Dawson in documenting a really good online topo for the Right Hand side of the crag

There is a very good topo online for this crag available from http://www.kirkleesclimbing.co.uk/holmfirth_edge_topo

The Left Hand side of the crag has become very over grown and many problems are unattractive or lost for the present.A few are still possible with just a little cleaning.

Approach notes

Following a recent meeting with the owners of the crag and the local residents. Climbers were asked to be more careful when parking not to block drive ways or park in front of people houses.

a large block has fallen from above the decent from the scarface, dev area. This has taken a chunk out of the rock next to the decent. I do not believe any problems have been effected
