St Austin's Stone (well a bit of it, not sure which bit) © Lordcarr

Crag features

Probably the only place to climb in Yorkshire Wolds, St Austins Stone is a large boulder situated about 8 miles southwest of Beverley. The majority of the boulder is very overgrown and the rock is mainly of bad quality. Its probably only really worth going if you are a local climber who wants a quick evening boulder session.

There is roadside parking on the verge with room for one car, alternatively there is a lay-by 3/4 of a mile west down the road. To get to the boulder head down the track from the road and just after the bend follow a small footpath for 50m. Approach time is 2 minutes from road side or 20 minutes from lay-by.

Access now definitely requires jumping the wire fence. If you're climbing here you're probably Trespassing though I doubt anyone would ever care or know. Super overgrown. Be more worthwhile climbing a bus shelter!

Visited today, unfortunately didn't climb proper cos no pad and top outs looked mossy - v interesting rock tho, good cleanish mid section and interesting speculated history when you search up name! Couldn't park in layby outside path, had to park in next one along

There is now a barbed wire fence surrounding the rock so took me a lot longer to find, even more overgrown than in the pictures, but some decent(ish) problems, all with terrible top outs.
