Eavestone Crag

West Yorkshire Gritstone

Pretty crag in wooded valley surrounding two lakes with a 'Land that time forgot' ambience.

Climbers should note that fishing and shooting syndicates pay for the use of the area - please do not antagonise any of these groups.

Reason: Nesting Birds

A blue rope was  put up across the path on the right side of the lake leading to the line of buttresses from Kloof Crag to Tin Pan Alley in 2011. The official footpath goes down the left side of the lake and it was thought that the rope was simply an indicator to ramblers to 'keep left' rather than a formal barrier to climbing on the Eavestone side. Several recent visits in 2012/13 have met with no opposition and the rope disapeared during 2013 when the substantial tree to which it was tied blew down. No formal access agreement  has ever been reached here but climbers have rarely been challenged in the past.

Group Advice

Not really suitable.
