John Hunt has recently added a couple of sitter/extensions to problems on the Cuckoo Block.
A (hopefully) comprehensive guide to the bouldering along the edge from Ilkley to Addingham. The guide covers lots of previously described areas but also some rediscovered and new ones. With something of this scale there’s bound to be some errors so, if you spot any, or you disagree with grades, then please let us know. … More Ilkley – Addingham High Moor
A number of limestone walls and blocks set in a fine positions with magnificent views of The Lakes, Lancs and the Yorkshire Peaks. Lots of very steady problems and a few tougher ones make this a fun area. Nothing of great height (apart from the main wall at Tow Scar) but sufficient to entertain. The … More Kingsdale Bouldering
The Guisecliff page now includes a very comprehensive update from Steve Phelps. Its amazing just how much climbing is to be found above and below the crag.

As a New Year present we’ve updated the Ilkley High Crag Topo. We’ve been meaning to do this for a while as its a good little venue and can be combined with other nearby locations. It is mostly north facing so does need a few dry days. Ilkley High Crag Dec 2020
A seaside bouldering location south of Dumfries in the very south of Scotland. The guide documents new and old problems and has been produced by our own Pete Jackson – now resident in the area. The sandy landings look very attractive! Sandyhills Final V1
