White Crag, Rombold’s Moor Another addition to our stable of mini-guides to White Crag – there are now four at this convenient crag for the Wharfedale / Airedale population. This guide also includes details of the disused quarries just beyond. Advertisements
A jumble of boulders that are composed of good, silvery grit, set high on Simon’s Seat (Barden Fell Area). Problems have been done over the years but nothing recorded until now. There are some very good boulder problems (and some that are really routes) ranging in height from diminutive to highball. Landings are generally o.k. … More Little Simon’s Seat
Two more good venues on the Airedale side of Ilkley Moor. 27 problems and a couple of projects left to go at. There is also some mysterious pre-history surrounding Kirk Stones – see the topo for links.

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.
Lanzarote South A new mini-guide to three areas near Playa Blanca. There is lots more to discover. For those with more time and perhaps based further north, there is some excellent bouldering North East of Arrecife, near Guatiza – see details on UK Climbing (https://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crag.php?id=18854).
Some new problems and grade suggestions so the files have been updated.
Over the stream from Rowantree Tor is a collection of boulders with some nice problems developed by Malcolm Townsley. Best approached and possibly combined with that crag they nevertheless warrant a visit.
A small but attractive venue consisting of a roof and a couple of blocks with problems up to Font 6c+. Nidderdale North – above the Nidderdale Way. The rock is very good and the location is open, providing fine views and soaking up any sun that is going.

The information has been gleaned from Greg Chapman’s very good topo for the Ravine and Valley areas and local … More Fuerteventura – Penitas
