Almscliff Crag is a Millstone Grit outcrop at the top of a small hill near the village of North Rigton, between Leeds and Harrogate in West Yorkshire, England. The crag was formed due to the softer adjacent strata of shale and mudstone eroding at a faster rate than the hard wearing millstone. The crag is one of the best climbing locations in the area. Some classic climbs include Parsons’ Chimney, Black Wall Eliminate, and Wall of Horrors.

    nice shot Colin. I remember as a kid growing up in Otley we used to call the Crag The Devils Wart or Giant’s Wart, because from Otley and areas that side of the valley it really does look like a giant wart on the landscape :)

  • Thanks mate. I have never heard it called that before but it’s a very apt description.
