Crag features

A spread out crag, with odd shaped pinnacles and a more traditional edge set low down to the west. Offwidths galore, the climbing can be brutal or delicate or both. Gets green, so get out there and do the routes. Excellent bouldering near the car park & spread out round the edges & pinnacles.

Crag updated in line with new YMC guide.

A lot of the more obscure bouldering has been excluded from the YMC guide so I have continued using the Cameron Duff Guide (Rockfax)

CD = Cameron Duff... Enjoy!

Hi there, found a copy of Yorkshire Gritstone Bouldering at Brimham yesterday. Let me know if it's yours

Great place to a explore and some good lines, but as a seeker of the quieter crag I didn't enjoy sharing the place with so many people! Wasn't in the best condition this visit either.

Anybody left a rope at Brimham, found an abandoned one today, any takers?

What are the best balancy slab climbs here? from lowest grade to about E1/E2? fairly thin but not awful as such? thanks

If anyone`s planning a look at heart shaped slab then beware as there is what seems to be quite a few hornets hanging around, probably best left till it gets colder!
