The Brimham Project

We’ve added the final files to the Brimham Project Page at Unknownstones today. They hopefully document all of the current problems at Brimham and the surrounding crags. If we’ve missed anything then please let us know.

Whilst producing the files we have recognised the sometimes great discrepancies in the grades of problems at Brimham and have made a small step towards rectifying this. One cause is possibly the nature of the rock at Brimham. It is often soft and changes significantly with use (or lack of use). However, there is still much to be done and we’d  be happy to receive any suggestions for amendments.

Pete Jackson’s original idea was due to the fact that many good older problems were being ignored. There are indeed some very good problems that don’t appear on the ‘circuit’. Again we hope that the guides recognise this.

  1. We went to the plantation crack area at Brimham on Sunday and added a couple of new problems.

    Little Jem 7a – climb straight 25 without any blocks at the start. A bit eliminate but good (FA Marco)

    Crack Addict 7a – start on the ledge under straight 25 and climb the crack into good holds on straight 25. It’s a bit dynamic if you’re a shortie. (FA Martin done straight afterwards by Marco)


    1. Hi Martin
      Thanks for the additions. It seems Straight 25 without the blocks at the start is how James Turnbull did it. I’ve checked his original description and that fits. Also, I know Mike Gray had thrown himself at the crack – but that’s yours! Nice one. Will update the script.
