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.
Discovered by Francis Holland, Calf Crag consists of two boulders overlooking Nidderdale. The boulders can be scritty in places, but this is excused for by the wonderful Cookie Monster. Perfect for a quick visit after Guisecliff or Brandrith.

Parking and Approach
Access has not been an issue, but it is close to the two farm houses so out of respect please keep noise to a minimum. Please park on the lay-by before the second bend and not anywhere on the farm track.
Open access land, designated under the Countryside & Rights of Way Act (2000) give area access rather than linear access as provided by public rights of way. It also gives a legal right of access specifically for climbing, as well as walking and other quiet recreation on foot.
Please bear in mind however that the landowner still has the right to restrict access for up to 28 days per year (often used on public safety grounds for shooting in moorland areas), and can also apply for longer term restrictions with Natural England (such as bans on dogs, or regular restrictions during particular times of year). It is important to check for these restrictions regularly as they can be added at short notice – all details for open access land in England can be found on Natural England’s website.
