With its fearsome overhang, Kilnsey Crag is an impressive limestone cliff just outside the small village of Kilnsey in Upper Wharfedale. The magnificent landscape of the Yorkshire Dales is popular with climbers and area around Kilnsley Cragg is no exception. The magnificent landscape of the Yorkshire Dales was shaped by melting glacial ice 300 million years ago. Today Kilnsley Cragg is evidence of this with the towering crag shadowing over the picturesque valley.
