Mission to Moors

The Moors Explorer has had lift off! Investigations into circuits on the North Yorkshire Moors are now well underway, plenty to go at and to clean up, the area has a lot to offer the boulderer and micro-route climber, the sandstone is very friendly to the skin, so shredding is minimal.

Great Autumn colours and moody skys
Whilst exploring we made a flying visit to Luke Hunt's good find, the NOS boulder this proved worthwhile and most enjoyable session dispite the very moody weather.

Steve Ramsden on Boulevard of Broken Dreams F6b
They were some worthwhile straight up problems done, and good hard pumpy traverses, the best being Boulevard of Broken Dreams F6b and the lower traverses, both with a big reach up or down depending on the direction you traverse, Elevator F6b+ left to right and Down Elevator F6b+ right to left, There is a possible lower traverse without using the curved sloping ramp, starting from sit on a vertical rib two metres from the left hand end working into the thin hand crack towards the large pocket (a l-o-n-g way), there is a faint hold inbetween and lower undercuts, hard!!! but someone may find a sequence across?

of the lower traverse Down Elevator F6b+ right to left
