VIDEO: Classic Gritstone Soloing – The Big E3s at Almscliff

As part of some research for a UKClimbing.com article I went out to Almscliff in Yorkshire – one of the best gritstone crags from my home area.

The crag is just awesome, with perfect quick drying rock and brilliant routes at all grades. I love it!

Ian Burton from Image Impossible captured some of my soloing on camera, and here is a great little video with some high routes and a bit of crag history. I hope you enjoy it.
