They've also put out a new sample of Ned Feehally attempting Samson at Burbage South in the Peak District. Normally given a trad grade of E6 7a, it's more often done as a highball boulder problem these days. 8a?

Cliff Rec (Holmfirth) Help Required

Cliff Rec is the large open area across the other side of the footpath (Wooldale Road) from the top of Holmfirth Cliff.

It's a well used and popular local resource and any development of the site would undoubtedly impact on Holmfirth Cliff

The following information has come by way of Richard from Friends of Cliff Rec.

Cliff Rec has been nominated to become a QE2 Field – an initiative developed as part of the Diamond Jubilee Year. If the nomination is approved, then the land will be protected from future development and will be there for future generations to enjoy as a recreational space.

To help our case, we need public votes. This will take about 1 minute of your time by following the link below and putting Kirklees into the search. Our nomination is Cliff Recreation Ground and if you click on “Support this Field” then it’s all done.


Direct link to the voting page is here

If nominated, we will then be able to bid for grants to improve the facilities available at Cliff Rec and encourage the Council to maintain its upkeep more effectively.

Votes need to be cast by 18th November.

Thanks in advance for your help.
