  • Climb the route where Carl's Dyno is static, from the diagonal break smear your way up into a mantel position and reach high for the break below the top lip, rearrange yourself to reach the top. Previously unrecorded but as with most of Almscliffe we doubt this is completely new...

  • To the right of Patta's Arete Dyno from good holds and smears for feet to the break.
  • Lunge/dyno

  • The tricky rounded arete requires a long reach to the break and commitment on the slab above.

Almscliffe

Climbing has been limited!

https://www.thebmc.co.uk/modules/RAD/ViewCrag.aspx?id=465

The crag is on privately owned land and is not designated as open access. This means that it's very important that climbers look after the crag and behave well to maintain a good relationship with the farmer and the currently excellent access we enjoy.

03.11.2016:
The farmer has recently asked for Almscliffe to not be used as a nightime/lamping venue and the BMC asks climbers to respect his wishes.
