Summary

Ease of access, quality and variety of routes, beautiful setting.

Description

Attermire crags is the collective name for a series of limestone outcroppings, barely one-mile east of the bustling Yorkshire Dales market town of Settle. The crags are mostly southwest-facing, generally dry and popular on long summer evenings. Most of the climbs on the main edge are quite short but pack in the moves. The rock and protection is generally very good and the lines are strong. The more distant Victoria Cave is a sport climbing crag that is in complete contrast to the main area with long steep and intimidating lines.

Access issues

Limited parking on the nearby Stockdale Lane. Please be careful not to damage sheep-grazing field walls. The farmer makes frequent checks.

Approach

From Market Square, take the R exit, by HSBC bank, and follow Victoria St and Albert Hill steeply out of town and onto High Hill Lane. In about 1-mile, take the L turn into Stockdale Lane. Park with discretion; otherwise a twenty-minute walk from town.

Where to stay

Settle is literally awash with B&B's and other types of accommodation. Nearest camp-site is at Knight Stainforth, 2 1/2 mile north on Stackhouse Lane (B6480 NW out of town, over the river bridge, TR after public swimming pool)
