Problems on Robin Hood's Stone - taken on a very misty day. © John Hunt

Crag features

A tiny little crag but one with a legend and a poem. There is limited quarried bouldering up behind on Pinfold Hill.

‘Here lies the stone where

Robin Hood

Took shelter when he was

Persued

While near is Rivock’s

Gloomy peak

With nature’s wildest

State imbued.’

Approach notes

NOT on access land. There are lots of parking places on Holden Lane. Robin Hood's Stone is very obvious from Holden Lane (the Silsden to West Morton road).

Guidebooks

No guides found for this crag

Local venue. 150m walk-in. Good for training or combined with one of the other moor edge crags, e.g. White Crag or Rivock Edge. Good views.
