Face east, so catches the morning sun. Newstones is good for bouldering and Baldstones has a few longer climbs, though nothing above 40' in length. Good, rough gritstone which can be green. The most notorious climb here is Ray's Roof.
The two adjacent crags of Baldstones and Newstones are located not far from the Roaches and Ramshaw Rocks. They lie to the north of Ramshaw and are usually quiet. Heading north on the A53, turn left at a crossroads after passing Ramshaw on the left. At the next junction park on the verge and take the path north past the convenient farmhouse tea-room. Newstones is reached first in 5 minutes, keep heading north for another 5 minutes through moorland to reach Baldstones.
