Carr Ridge on the other side of Clay Bank Top with the Coast to Coast heading over that way. I had already prebooked accomodation here in the Yorkshire Moors for the Coast to Coast and have only in the last day or two started to get over my chest infection so rather than waste the booking I took a little trip here to see what I missed out on!

Posing with a great view behind.


Roseberry Topping distant to the north. We had planned a short walk up there later today.

The constructed path across the top. No chance of getting lost!

The top of the Wainstones, doesn't look much from here but below is spectacular. The hill behind is Broughton Bank.

Tall pinnacles around the Wainstones.


Lots of rock climbing to be had here!


Such a fantastic place to explore.
