Can anybody reccommend a climbing guide for the Yorkshire Dales area? I'm off for a weekend trip there in a couple of months but I'm having difficulty finding a guide for the area. Roughly the Askrigg region

Preferably this will include somewhere I can easily set up some top ropes on easy routes as I'm taking some inexperienced friends.

Barring a book, any recommendation's for crags that fit the bill, above?


Another guide book option for you might be the BMC sport climbing guide.

Maybe the ROCKFAX? http://www.rockfax.com/climbing-guides/books/northern-england-2008/

By the way, this is a great site for finding info on crags in a given area: http://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/map/ - once you find a crag it also lists relevant guidebooks.

  • Nothing on the logbook. :( – user2766 Mar 13 '14 at 10:25

After a good trawl though my local outdoors shop I came across this book:

enter image description here Yorkshire gritstone.

It covers an area called slipstones, which appears to be the nearest significant crag.
