Crag features

The ultimate in moorland crags. Good rock, fine views and unspoiled. What more could you ask for (apart from it being nearer to the road that is)?
A great mix of routes and problems. Go with a few people and take mats and gear though there is a great bouldering circuit and a fine set of routes if either is your preference.

Some very good bouldering and route additions since the guide came out. Bouldering update on Unknownstones website.

Approach notes

From Grimwith Reservoir parking (notices of any closures posted here and on YDNP website though these are rare). Around the left side of the lake and up to the track. Around to the second valley leading to the moor.
Follow the rising track past mine and grouse breeding structures then up onto the moor and a view of the crag. About 1 hour from the road

WARNING The Edge, Flake and Slab problems have become dangerously loose. Do not climb.

No Access Issues

The grouse Moor may be closed for shooting - see signs at the access point and check CRoW information as below.

Seasonal Restrictions

Reason: Nesting Birds

The landowner has been granted a dog restriction on the Open Access land at Grimwith Moor for grouse breeding. This runs until 18/06/2010 and includes Great Wolfrey.

I mountain-biked in (past a No Cycling sign I realised later - don’t know if that is enforced) and that took half an hour, plus half an hour hike from the grouse butts. One hour estimate on foot is a joke, but the old ones are the best as a funnier person than me once said! If you’re old and crap and unfit it’s more than an hour. Routes and crag in general are tremendous.
