A fun offwidth has been done by Tom Shillito on the Castle (Central Area). A Leg and a Wing 6c (provisional grade). Maybe a good one to get the full body into gear after the Xmas XS?
To kick off 2020 (hopefully it will have stopped raining by then) here’s an updated guide that we think includes all of the bouldering at this truly ace crag. Since the YG1 Guide there has been lots of development and a growing tendency to highball the remaining lines and some of the old routes. Be … More Great Wolfrey 2020

Ok so there’s litter, brambles, occasional feral kids and some sandy rock too – but there also much to appreciate. Thanks go … More Baildon Bank

There are now around 170 hereabouts – plus they are close to the already well-documented ones at Nought Bank … More Guisecliff Update
