The Central Wall from the Right Wing

Description 

Malham cove is an impressive natural feature of the Yorkshire landscape, all the more impressive due to the stellar climbing that can be found here.

The cove forms the perfect backdrop to the idyllic village of Malham. Its aspect offers good shelter on the colder months, and is a perfect sun-trap in the summer.

The central wall is provides an intimidating sheet of rock, which is complemented well by the wall on either side, which provide friendly venues.

Getting There 

The code is reached a short distance north of the village of Malham. To reach Malham take the A65 from Skipton until Gargrave where a right turn sets you on the road to Malham (about 6.5 miles down the road).
