An unusually busy day at Newstones


Face east, so catches the morning sun. Newstones is good for bouldering and Baldstones has a few longer climbs, though nothing above 40' in length. Good, rough gritstone which can be green. The most notorious climb here is Ray's Roof.

Getting There 

The two adjacent crags of Baldstones and Newstones are located not far from the Roaches and Ramshaw Rocks. They lie to the north of Ramshaw and are usually quiet. Heading north on the A53, turn left at a crossroads after passing Ramshaw on the left. At the next junction park on the verge and take the path north past the convenient farmhouse tea-room. Newstones is reached first in 5 minutes, keep heading north for another 5 minutes through moorland to reach Baldstones.

Classic, but you won't have to queue for this one. Move left to the base of the overhanging slot after an undercut start. Determination will get you established in the crack, but it's a very tight squeeze to finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
