This Area Is A Working Farm MORE INFO >>>


Another farm with some climbable rock stuffed inbetween the pastures and forest. Most the rock here isnít very tall, a fair amount of the cliffs off the main cliff havenít been retrobolted, and donít be surprised to find your route covered in lichen and cobwebs Ė if you can find it at all. Itís not the first place Iíd recommend visiting but if youíre in town for awhile itís worth checking out for at least one day.

I think few would disagree that Gulp is the most memorable climb at Bayley and a must do. Whether itís a good memory or a bad one depends on your opinion of squeeze chimneys. You might also give 20/20 and Wonít Be Long a go.

The narrowing chimney/offwidth that will devour you. Best to leave the chimney at arround the 4th bolt and climb the crack externelly. Be prepared to lose some skin and to endure some pain. The sort of route you enjoy once but don't repeat.....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
