A fine, quite high wall of perfect grit that is very Slipstones like and faces south in a grand position overlooking the valley and moors up the valley past Brown Beck Crag. There is also a collection of good boulders. Landings are flat but a couple of mats are recommended as some problems are high. … More Jenny Binks Boulders
The north facing slope has seen attention over the years but the addition of some good problems by Neil McCallum has reawakened interest. There’s an interim little topo here. PDF Prints A5 – 2 pages per A4 sheet Rough Haw North 1
There are those crags that hang about in the back of your mind – there are things do there, perhaps even exciting possibilities, but there isn’t any real rush. Funny little Harecroft crag is very much that type of place. I turned down a trip to the Lakes to save my poorly arm. I promised myself … More Harecroft finished up
Two good boulders behind Bat Buttress developed a while back by Mike Gray – recently rediscovered and a few easier problems added. About a dozen problems – a few of which are very good. Easily combined with a visit to Little Brimham or Bat Buttress – or you could tackle Highwayman. Nidderdale South Area on this … More Brimham Graffa Plain
Andrew Barker obviously had a good day at Ash Head recently and added a couple of worthwhile additions to the Alphabet and Big Block are at Coombs Crags. The topo has been updated.
Another Yeadon topo update to account for the 2 new problems put up a couple of weekends ago. Dom’s Problem (yet to be named) is now probably the hardest thing at the crag at 7B and the wall left of The Thread is filling up nicely. Good quality sit starts to Rocky Horror and Dom’s … More Even more Yeadon
After some activity at Gate House we have produced an updated topo. The crag is proving to be a fine venue for those seeking an unspoiled, sheltered and quick drying location with a good number of Font 2 to 7a problems. Seen here is Dave Turnbull on Dizzy Izzy F5
The old Yeadon topo was looking, frankly, prehistoric. Since it was last updated there have been about 10 new problems added to the crag (of course, it’s still nowhere near worked out) between the grades 6B and 7A and these are now all topo’d up for your delight. After listening to feedback from new visitors, … More Yeadon – updated topo
We’ve updated the topo – some additions and grade adjustments, etc. Will Buck’s new problem is called Slopher 7b+/c and a line of quality. Its ‘Slopher’ because “it resembles Cypher at the nearby Slipstones – but its climbed on slopers”. Nice one Will!
The Buck team had a grand day at High Crags Colsterdale yesterday. Will ticked the obvious high quality arete at a grade described as ” somewhere north of 7b+” and sorted out a couple of other additions. Meanwhile the ever-strong Will Hunt and Huw Goodall continued their quest to drag Yeadon Crag into the present … More Had a good weekend?
