Tow Scar

Yorkshire Limestone

Perhaps the most westerly climbing ground in Yorkshire sits high on the edge of the escarpments to the north west of Ingleton. It faces south west at an altitude of 360m with an exceptionally fine outlook ranging over Bowland, the Lune Valley and the Lakeland mountains. Most of the scar is broken but areas of good rock have produced some pleasant, if a little limited, climbing. The crag is exposed to the elements and dries quickly although some of the solution runnels weep after rain.

Parking and Approach

Drive north from Thornton-in-Lonsdale on the Dent road past a junction on the left (radio transmitter station). At the summit of the road, before the descent into Kingsdale, there is space for a few cars to be parked on the left where a gate allows access to a track (grid ref 691757). The track (shown on OS maps) zig-zags up the field and leads to another gate in the left-hand corner of the pasture. Go through the gate but leave the track and bear half left uphill towards a slight depression on the skyline. Maintain this general direction and pick up sheep tracks which descend slightly to run underneath the scar above the pasture wall - about 15 minutes from the road
