A select band of three, me John B, and Andy3 headed for the the tiny but very pleasant Camp Hill in Eskdale. Carol and Bruce having opted for the (by comparison, towering limestone of Twistleton!)
While the Vale of York shivered in mist we had sunshine and beautiful views over the N.Y.Moors, Danby Dale and over Botton village. The crag is approached from the road on top of the ridge and is about fifteen mins. walk over the heather.
The best routes are about 5B(Ray chose the venue!) and seemed to be lacking protection as well as holds! We kept ourselves amused all day on several severe`s and one VS, leading some and soloing and top roping others.
By about 4-00 we felt we had "done" the crag and decided to reccy Clemets Crag a Fifteen min. walk in the other direction from the car.
Although this is much higher than Camp Hill it is in the trees and is very damp and green. Not recommended!
