Can be windy and exposed to the elements, good to check the forecast. Arguably THE best grit stone crag in Yorkshire, that should be all the description you need. There are tons of classic routes, some tend to be a bit polished but it is not difficult to get away from that and onto something delightfully frictiony. Grades range from M to E5.
Can approach off the Otley Rd. along new lane? or there is another approach from the other side. Walk up takes about 2 mins and is easy to figure out.
