As the Covid-19 lockdown eases, access for climbing is opening back up, subject to some measures and restrictions depending on where you are going. Please make sure you have read and understood our current advice before heading out and apply it alongside RAD advice to ensure access issues don’t develop.

Low Huller Stones

Yorkshire Gritstone

A great bouldering crag. The landings are mostly good, but some of the problems are high. Clean Grit and a good range of lower grades. some landings can be damp after rain but there should be plenty to do even then.

Crag information
Climbing Area: Yorkshire Rock Type: Gritstone
Importance: Regional CRoW Land: No
Ownership: Unknown No. of Routes: 100
Within National Park: No Year Developed:
Grid Reference: SE204688


Though the approach and some of the blocks are on access land not all of the boulders are. There is a gate through the dry-stone wall leading to the lower areas and this MUST be kept closed to prevent sheep from entering the newly wooded area.

It is not a good idea to access the crag via Upper Huller Stones as this can disturb the local birdlife and anyway is through deep and uncooperative heather and bracken.


Parking and Approach

If in more than one car then park carefully on the B6265 near the Brimham turning and take the tarmac road (which is a footpath, although not signed as such) towards Smaden Head Farm.   Just after a bridge (parking for one car here so long as it is well off the road) go through the gate and keep going along the track beside a wall until this runs into another wall – at this point turn left (on access land) and follow the wall to the rocks.  Pass over the top and drop in at the west end.  25 minutes. The boulders divide in a southern bay and a northern area which is accessed by the gate.
