Climbing and abseiling on Ilkley Moor

Head to the famed Cow and Calf rocks for a spot of climbing and abseiling on Ilkley Moor with the very fabulous Lost Earth Adventures team

“We’ve now done a fair few adventures in Yorkshire and it’s safe to say that this was without doubt the most challenging we’ve had to do so far. The pictures and videos make it look like a breeze but it was a fair old challenge for both of us. Thankfully, we had the very fabulous Seren Stacey-Jones as our instructor and she coached and cajoled us until we made it to the top, and back down again. An amazing day out for those who like a good challenge. “James & Lyndsey, Yorkshire's Best Adventures

What Lost Earth Adventures say:

England is home to world-class climbing; the gritstone crag of Stanage stretching for over a mile and the two-tiered crag of The Roaches in the Peak District, to the prehistoric feel of the sandstone towers at Brimham Rocks and the Cow and Calf rocks in Ilkley.

This is a big venue with big routes perched high above the popular spa town. There is a great little cafe at the bottom to get your pre-climb cuppa and enough routes to amuse the most adventurous of groups. There are shorter climbs popular with schools and youth groups and huge blank walls for people that want to push the limits or scare themselves senseless.

The Ilkley Cow and Calf is a regular on the sets of Emmerdale and Helicopter Heroes, so there is a good chance you will be climbing some famous rock! Close to Otley, Harrogate, Leeds, Halifax, Bradford, Skipton, Settle, Wakefield, Huddersfield and Burnley.

At Lost Earth Adventures our aim is to give you a thrilling and fulfilling day out on the rocks! We provide you with all of the tools, guidance and instruction needed to create a unique experience you’ll never forget. All of our rock climbing days can be run as private guided sessions for you and your group, giving you the freedom and flexibility to make your day your own.

You can also choose to join one of our group sessions that are running throughout the Spring and Summer. Half day, full day and multi-day climbing is available.On all ascents and descents you will have a safety line attached to you keeping you safe.
