CROOKRISE


One of Yorkshire's premier venues and a long-time evening favourite despite the flog up to the cliff. The cliff consists of some fine steep buttresses separated by more broken areas, so a bit of moving around is needed to get the best out of the place. The path along the base of the cliff is a bit scrambly in places. There are almost 200 named routes on the main crag and on a complex jumble of huge blocks below the edge. The bouldering is briefly covered here.
