Quite a few sandy, often friable gritstone blocks in a lovely quiet setting. The largest 'boulder' has a couple of good boulder problems and micro-routes.
Located in a meadow just off the A661, between Wetherby and Harrogate.
Approach: Park in the little bay (space for 2 cars) on the opposite side of the road to Plumpton Rocks (signposted - no climbing there though).
Hop over the stile and follow the path until you see the rocks.
|Some of the grades given below seem very off and don't agree with the YMC Yorkshire Grit guide... Sandman, Western Edges and Pockets wall are harder than the f3+/f4 they get here (listed at f6A/+ in the guide). |

|The rock quality is in that murky sandy area between good rock and choss. The setting is a cow shite ridden field. Enjoy.|

|Loads of stuff - but cold in November - pleasant alternative if Almscliffe and Brimham are off. Yup - loads of cattle, but they're friendly.|

|Good spot, easy access and pleasant afternoon bouldering, until the farmer turned out the cattle anyway.|
