About Hetchell Crags(OS):

Hetchell is a small, soft gritstone crag with about 30 routes and is about 30 feet tall. The rock here is softer than most gritstone crags, so care must be taken to avoid destroying the routes. There is a nice selection of routes in all grades from DIFF to 6a. Worth taking a look at.
Nearest town or city: Wetherby
