Malham Cove is the jewel in the crown of Yorkshire's limestone crags. A huge amphitheatre of perfect rock which offers classic routes of all grades and styles in a beautiful setting. There are over 200 routes, with multi-pitch routes over 300 feet high. It is a truly awesome site with huge, steep walls filling the view. The cove has always been a venue where grades have been forced, and this is likely to continue, as more lines are forced through the huge roof. It is particularly famous for its modern sport climbs some of which are amongst the most challenging of anywhere in the world, the sectors on the periphery are home to some of the highest quality traditional routes in the county, if not the country!
