Crag features

A pretty dire spot in the Simonside Forest. If you are stuck picnicking in the car park it may be worth sneaking off to have a play around.

Approach notes

From the Lordenshaws carpark the place is signed by the forestry commision. About 10 minutes brisk walk.


Northern England

The book is a selected route and crag guide although it still manages to pack over 2350 routes between its covers, spread across 44 crags. The main focus is on routes of all grades from Moderate to E9, but the best bouldering is also described.

Out of print:
Due to recent forestry work, the rock is now just sitting inside the treeline. Maybe worth a look now that the trees are gone and gets some light.
