Pennines

 

The East Pennines is a wide area consisting of the eastern watershed of the Pennine chain. With the exception of Lambs Hill Quarry and Redmire Quarry which are both limestone all the other crags are excellent gritstone. Slipstones to the south is probably the most well known and certainly the most extensive, it was originally developed by climbers based in Teesside but is now covered by the Yorkshire Mountaineering Club. Of the other venues Goldsborough is the sleeping giant. While it does not have the quantity of climbs that can be found at Slipstones it does provide a wealth of excellent climbs and boulder problems in an open and remote setting. If it's esoteric outcrops that you are after the perhaps Low Carrs and Monks Moor in Hudeshope will fit the bill?

 

Most of these crags are in Upper Teesdale around Barnard Castle and Middleton in Teesdale. There is also some climbing in Weardale.
