Another farm with some climbable rock stuffed inbetween the pastures and forest. Most the rock here isn’t very tall, a fair amount of the cliffs off the main cliff haven’t been retrobolted, and don’t be surprised to find your route covered in lichen and cobwebs – if you can find it at all. It’s not the first place I’d recommend visiting but if you’re in town for awhile it’s 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 it’s a good memory or a bad one depends on your opinion of squeeze chimneys. You might also give 20/20 and Won’t 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
