Almscliff Crag, Yorkshire – Photo: geograph.org .uk

This is outdoor bouldering at it’s best, great views, challenging routes and grippy rock that can be climbed pretty much all year round.

Almscliff is a gritstone crag sat on top of the hills between Leeds and Harrogate, with views over the rolling green Yorkshire landscape. The crag’s exposed position means that you’ll often be climbing in wind but that lack of shelter also makes Almscliff quick drying too, so the odd spot of rain shouldn’t stop you climbing.

The main crag at Almscliff is popular with trad climbers and has some higher routes that can be tackled with just bouldering mats, but the bulk of the outdoor bouldering is found among the rocks that surround the crag itself. There are more than 80 outdoor bouldering problems here with a big emphasis on upper body strength which has led to the crag’s nickname, Armscliff. There are climbs for most levels available but its a great spot particularly for improvers looking to develop their outdoor bouldering and take on some new challenges as the gritstone gives plenty of traction and some interesting features for those tougher outdoor bouldering moves.
