Yorkshire Bouldering - Shipley Glen
As part of an ongoing strategy to drag the KMC out of its Peak District comfort zone I present you with Yorkshire Boulering 2017 at Shipley Glen. Described on UKC as "A low crag only really suitable for bouldering or soloing” Shipley Glen boasts a high concentration of good clean problems around the 4b-7b range. There is lots of variety too. Many of the problems involve climbing up small holds on numerous breaks, but there is a mix of sit-downs, traverses, slabs, arêtes and overhangs for everyone to get their teeth into…
I intend to arrive around 10.30 and will focus, initially in the John area for a warm up before following our noses for the rest of the day.
Essential equipment includes a warm jacket, a chalk bag, a wooly hat, climbing shoes and a flask with a warm drink. The more ambitious boulderers might want to also bring a towel, a toothbrush and a bouldering mat.

Hope to see many of you there,
