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.

Exposed crag open to wind from valley. All 5 routes we did were polished, some severely, which added to the grade in my opinion. Some really nice lines though. 10 minute walk in.

Routes now in order!

There's got to be some way the routes on this page can be swung into some sort of order...?

Great outlook. Good for evening soloing action apart from ropey landings.
Dave Kerr - 29/Apr/07
There is no shortage of quality routes, but a number of climbs appear to be undergraded. E.g. the \"Diff\" on Bay Wall is at least VDiff and \"Skelton Scoop\" is certainly a strenuous VDiff. A good crag, but perhaps be careful not to try to push your grade.
