About Crimdon Dene (OS):

A couple of good limestone buttresses offering some of the best climbing in the area. The 20 or so routes tend to be hard because of the steepness of the crags, however, there are a few Diffs on Ramp Crag. 40 to 50 feet tall and worth a visit.
Nearest town or city: Hartlepool
Directions: OS 93 GR NZ 476 370 Alt. 27m
3.5 miles NW of Hartlepool. From the last roundabout on the A1086 leaving Hartlepool continue north for almost a mile and park by a railway bridge. The valley to the left has two crags, Overhang Crag on the south side and Ramp Crag on the north. Both are about a five minute walk from here.
