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.

Well worth a visit but don't believe the approach time quoted in the Rockfax guide. The walk in takes 20-30 minutes!

Great crag, climber here 16th June 2015 in Soft centre area. All the climbs offer something interesting, bolting is great ! a great crag to build some confidence.

Had a good day climbing on the Soft Centre routes. They are shortish, well bolted and on good sound rock. Good work and bolting by the Yorkshire boys.

The quality of the rock at the top of the crag is very poor and makes it difficult to make even a tenuous belay. Not worth the visit.
