Northern Limestone : Yorkshire, Cumbria, Lancashire covers the premier limestone sport crags of the UK with the big three of Malham, Kilnsey and Gordale and their world class climbing. Alongside these titans are numerous other destinations that offer both sport and trad climbing throughout the grades, ranging from the intimidating walls of Blue Scar and Trow Gill to the long lines of newly developed low to mid-grade sport crags such as Moughton Nab and Giggleswick South. Low to mid-grade trad climbing is also well catered for on the walls and escarpments at the likes of Trowbarrow Quarry, Twisleton Scar, Attermire Scar and Witches Quarry.

Virtually all of the crags in the book are set in beautiful countryside and are close to fabulous pubs, villages, camping and bunkhouse accommodation.


Previous Editions

In 1990 we published the first Rockfax guidebook to Yorkshire Limestone. It was the first Rockfax guidebook ever and was authored by Mick Ryan, ben Walker and Greg Rimmer. It featured (slightly washed out) black and white pohoto-topos and basic route information on the same page and set the precedent for all the books that have followed. The next publication to cover Yorkshire Limestone was Northern Limestone published in 2004. This big book covered Yorkshire and Cumbria as well as the main Peak crags.
