Carncliff Top


Carncliff and Earl 2015

Guide prints 2 pages per Landscape sheet

A pleasant bouldering area on Carncliff Top – the hill opposite and south-west of Simon’s Seat and just above the Earl’s Seat crag.

There are good areas and the rock is coarse grit that has weathered to produce some fine features, providing strong lines to the problems.

The landings are flat and the walls face in a variety of directions so sun and shade can be found at most times of the day. It is in a high moorland setting and although it dries relatively quickly you are advised to choose the day of your visit wisely.
