Brimham Rocks is on the moor just to the east of Nidderdale, four miles from Pateley Bridge off B6265 and is an immensely popular tourist attraction owing to the amazing rock formations. This Gritstone labyrinth offers a wide variety of routes from diffs to Es but be aware that some free standing blocks offer a challenge to descend so some previous knowledge can be very valuable.
This confusing array of gritstone blocks, towers and buttresses, threaded by myriad paths has confused many climber and the chances of getting completely lost are very real. Owls occasionally nest in the Pig Traverse Area (they have nested 2022). Signage will be posted.
Approach - Tradition has it that we meet at Cubic Block which is just a short walk from the car park on its LHS as you enter. Parking is pay & display (coins only in the past) for none National Trust members and is now £6.00 for four hours so you may wish to car share or approach from a side road. The main gate is locked at 9:00pm or dusk if earlier.
