Guisecliff

Alongside the Nought Bank Boulders and spread though the woods below Guisecliff are a mass of blocks. Some problems have been long-known to hold quality problems such as A Little Sparkle 7a, Afromoss 7a+ and the Mop Top problems. Over the years a number of the great and good have beavered away and a high number of problems have resulted. These have sometimes been tricky to find but, having been documented by Steven Phelps in this mini-guide,’ this should now be mostly resolved. Steven has been busy cleaning old problems and exploring new ones, many of which look inviting. There has been a massive piece of research aiming to uncover the history of the area though sources that once existed are now hard or even impossible to find.

As they have a woodland location they are sheltered but a dry spell is advised for a visit and it is a good idea to carry a soft brush. The grade spread is wide – from easy to 7c+
