Crag features

Lovely setting, sheltered and sunny. A long neglected trad venue now  transformed into a popular low to mid grade sport crag..

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 1 February to 31 May

Reason: Nesting Birds

Northern Limestone : Yorkshire, Cumbria, Lancashire

Northern Limestone : Yorkshire, Cumbria, Lancashire covers some of the best limestone crags in the UK including the big three of Malham, Kilnsey and Gordale. Alongside these titans are numerous other destinations that offer both sport and trad climbing throughout the grades, ranging from the intimidating walls of Blue Scar and Trow Gill to the long lines of newly-developed low to mid-grade sport crags such as Moughton Nab and Giggleswick South. Trad climbing is also well catered for on the walls and escarpments at the likes of Trowbarrow Quarry, Twistleton Scar, Attermire Scar and Witches Quarry.

The start of Candy's Case is now a bit harder as a good lay away hold broke off yesterday at the top of the right hand crack between bolt 1 & 2 :-(

The normal approach to High Stoney Bank described in Rockfax is rather long and following the left bank of the stream (river?) is not that easy. Far better to strike directly across to the crag from the "lone Tree" (the alternative approach mentioned in Rockfax).

First bolt on "Come On (Sport)" (aka "Come on Come on) is loose, needs a spanner.

4th or 5th Bolt up, just before the break under the overhang on Paranoid Eyes has fallen off. Nut, washer and bolt unscrewed themselves from the wall, screw still intact in the wall. Just so you know. Its obvious when you get under the route.
