VS 5b Fence Butress
VS 4c Stomach Traverse

Strenuous. Takes the undercut hand crack that sadly widens above. Once established above the undercut section, the climbing eases. Finish up slightly right for maximum enjoyment. The climb got its name from starting up the lefthand crack and then traversing across on the big ledge.

Up the corner crack to the overhang and follow the rightward traverse . Good holds to finish.

E4 6a Impending Doom
E5 6b Megadoom
HVS 5a Great Western

A 4 star route in the guide. Climb 'Crack of Doom' to the roof, then traverse leftwards to a hard pull into a rest in the niche. Finish either direct or up right via 'The Five Star Finish'. Is generally considered THE best climb on grit, some disagree.

Originally known as 'The Great Chimney'. Well polished chimney. Climbed direct, but better and more exposed to go out to the left near the top.

M The Easy Way
E1 5b Pulpit Corner
E4 6b Al Says 6a
S Fat Man's Misery
VS 4c Frankland's Green Crack

Put up in 1919. Possibly the best known climb at Almscliff, along with Great Western. Follow the green crack to a small ledge below the overhang. Step right and pull up into the upper crack. The final overhang keeps things interesting.

E3 5c Merlin
E3 6a The Big Greeny
E4 6a Fungus The Bogeyman
HS 4b Parsons' Chimney

Put up circa 1900! Climb the overhanging V corner directly to the cave. Chimney up from there with increasing exposure to exit outwards on good holds. A vintage classic, as the guide book says.
