Attermire Scar hosts a plethora of fine climbs at all grades where you’re pretty much guaranteed peace and solitude as you climb in a dramatic landscape evocative of a remote mountain setting rather than the gentle rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales.
Attermire occupies an elevated position on the hills above Settle and is best described as a small massif consisting of about six or seven independent buttresses each with its own character and style of routes. Despite its elevated position the various buttresses face east, south and west and shelter from the wind can be found.
Approach is made from a parking spot (lay-by) on the Settle to Malham road at the turn off to Stockdale Lane (NGR 836631). From the parking, walk up Stockdale Lane for 200m and where the road turns sharp right. Take the stile over the wall and continue north along the footpath over a slight rise where the crag is revealed directly ahead. From there continue along the marked path down and slightly right to a stile in the drystone wall. Open access to the various buttresses can be made from this point.
We usually meet over to the left on Southwest Buttress
