NEWSTONES AND BALDSTONES


A pair of secluded and quiet outcrops that can easily be combined in a single visit. Although well-known as a bouldering venue, there are also some worthwhile roped climbs here, with the added attraction of a mini-summit or two, so it is worth bringing the rope and runners along.
