COVID-19

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.

Eavestone Boulder Field

Yorkshire Gritstone

A little boulder field in an open meadow near the mighty Eavestone. First mentioned in Wild Bouldering (1997). Pleasant and good for beginners. Sheltered in a dry valley and mostly west facing. No tree cover, so very little seepage. Routes and bouldering: Good, mostly lower grade bouldering.

The boulders are not on Open Access land and it's unclear if access for climbing is tolerated or not. In early 2021 new signs indicating there is no right of way were erected. If you do visit, keep a very low profile, follow a strict leave no trace ethic, be polite to anyone you meet and leave if asked to.

Parking and Approach

Park as for Slipstones. Go down the hill to the bend and cross the stile feature.

Group Advice

As any visits need to be low profile, groups are not suitable here.
