HIGHCLIFF NAB


Highcliff Nab sits in a splendid position just to the south of Guisborough with great views south and west across the North York Moors and north and east towards the distant conurbation of Teesside and the North Sea.
The best routes at Highcliff are technical and bold wall climbs with the prominent arete of Magic in the Air being the showpiece of the crag. The walls to either side of this arete have been tackled by various routes over the years, often climbed in separate halves, or with high side runners, but now moistly done direct and in a pure style. For slightly more amenable challenge Scarecrow Crack is the one to head for and there are also a few good easier routes towards the right-hand side of the crag.
