A small bouldering venue high on the south-western flank of Ilkley Moor overlooking the mighty metropolis of Keithley. Best avoided if windy as you won’t be able to stand up.
Recent tree clearance has opened up the western side of the edge but this might not be on Access Land.
Close to Silsden Road, but the “legal” approach via access land and no wall climbing is longer and more complicated. Park carefully near Moorcock Farm. Follow the footpath uphill onto Access Land. Make for the gate at the top left corner of the rough field; a fenced track takes you to moorland containing the edge. 15 minutes.
The blocks which were hidden by the recently felled plantation are best reached from footpaths and logging roads directly below them.
|Local venue. Good place to spend an hour. Take a beer, beer towel and rock shoes and enjoy the views. Easily combined with Robin Hood's Stone for a good workout.|
