Bridestones 360 © Alastair Lee - Posingproductions.com
Note these are NOT the same Bridestones as in West Yorkshire.
A series of boulders/pinnacles and small very steep edges composed of soft sandstone. The grades vary from sandbags to pushovers. Recommended: Strawberry Fields (4c), Sambo Pati (5a), Grades range from font 2 - font 7a and provide a variety of holds such as slopers, pockets, jugs and the odd crimp or pinch. They face all directions so there is always some climbs in the sun. The butress section can be best enjoyed on a sunny evening. Note, after a certain amount of wet weather, holds becom friable. The easiest entry is by the Dalby Forest Drive toll road, although by car it now costs £9 unless you have the Dalby pass, other entries can be found from the Pickering to Whitby road anywhere between Lockton and Saltersgate.
Current toll is £9 for cars!
