The topo for Crag A has been updated to add a couple of minor extras, with an enforced warning about the state of access! It’s worth bearing in mind that if you want to visit this venue, now is the time since there will be increased forestry activity from May 2018 – September 2018.
Well, here we are again, my friends. Grit season may not have been officially announced via the only medium that matters (UKBouldering.com), but certain scrittlers have already got a head start with adding new problems to Yorkshire’s pebbles. Here’s a round up of what the young James Turnbull has been up to in the past … More Open Season
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

A very fine looking new problem has been done by a chap called Alex. Looking forward to having a go at it. Don’t forget send us details of your new problems so we can update the topos!
Bingleybleau has landed. A huge thanks to Russell Bowman and friends who have painstakingly unearthed, brushed, developed, and documented a large number of problems at a real span of grades in the heart of Airedale. Quick drying, on excellent rock, and just in time for the winter season!
A new problem has been added to the Prune Buttress at Yeadon. The Arkenstone follows a technical start into an easier but spicy finish at Font 7A+. The guide has been updated and is available for download. This begs the question, which will be the next project line to be done on The Prune? There’s more to … More New problem at Yeadon Crag
Something special for budding esoterica lovers to scratch their heads over. The guide (or clues!) for Spirit of Kinder are now online. A great climb, and a wonderful poem from Ruth Snowden. Keep it secret, keep it safe…
