The Little Brimham Edge blocks are located in a wood. Bovine Buttress has a more open location. Both areas offer high quality routes and problems, though some may need cleaning. The woodland shade is often helpful in summer but the rocks can remain damp in all but dry weather. Bovine Buttress is less shady, catches the afternoon and evening sun and dries quite quickly. Many of the problems may well be routes so bring plenty of mats.
The climbing takes the form of a discontinuous edge in the woods above the main path.
Due to the woodland location many problems look a bit green. Where this is the case they soon clean up. It is worth bringing a brush though a rope would be necessary in some cases!
From the main car parks a path exits southern end of the western one. Keep going, across a road and take a path that follows the wall between the fields and woodland. You will see Bovine Buttress across the field on the right but please don’t approach over the walls as this is very likely to give rise to access problems. Keep on the path until it drops to a grassy track at the right-hand end of the Little Brimham Edge and from where the first rocks (but the last described) are obvious and reached via a gate. This point is also easily approached from the road by Kimberley Farm, but don’t park here or on the track leading to the gate.
To reach Bovine Buttress you can easily skirt around the bottom of the edge then carefully cross a wall/fence and climb up to the boulders – about 150 metres past the last rocks of the edge.
Apparantly no dogs!
