North York Moors in Winter

 

Winter walks can be challenging and rewarding, however the sandstone outcrops of the North York Moors are not considered appropriate venues for ice axes and crampons. Cringle Moor near Carlton (ice in places and some mixed) or Maiden Spring is perhaps the exception.  The superb summer classic Night Watch at Whitestone Cliffe has been hacked and scratched by selfish winter climbers, leaving lasting scars, so please choose your routes wisely!

 

Just a few shots of Winter climbing on Cringle Moor. Some nice icefalls and the first winter ascent of 'Tell Chris Craggs nout' (V 6) by Franco Cookson
