Amazing end to the day. Bridestones, Yorkshire © Jamie Moss

Crag features

Excellent bouldering venue, with good landings. On top of a moor and hence exposed to weather (but also quick-drying). A quality venue with a unique feel, pebbles and slopers galore and some great sequences. Take care with the eroding rock.(I have used V grades and Font grades for all problems.) Still some hard lines to go up here...

Approach notes

Access from car park at Sportsman's Inn on Kebs Road across the moors between Burnley and Hebden Bridge. From the car park walk 200m towards Hebden Bridge, then use the public footpath to walk up to the trig point. The Bridestones are just a few metres to the S.

Not to be confused with the Bridestones in N Yorks.

No Access Issues

There are no major access problems but climbing is not permitted on ‘The Egg’ (The Bridestone) due to erosion and stability concerns. To safeguard future access, please ensure dogs are kept on leads and do not leave any litter.

Tried the Hawkstones Sunday morning but access is closed for lambing. Climbed at Brides instead and was horrified to discover a dozen 12mm holes drilled into the rock at he top of the castle area, sorry no pictures but there not hard to spot. ?

I'm afraid to say this crag is well and truly knackered, most of the problems have completely changed in nature due to the erosion of holds, the rock is in a fragile state, and, in some cases some problems have completely lost to erosion/wear and tear.

What's the line opposite Nine (near Bridestone)? Good climbing protected by a tricky start.

Could we get some buttress's/areas added on here?

Some of the problems at the Bridestones are undergraded - for example there is a route called Tea Break or something on area G there. This route is graded 5a but probably 5c.
