The Bridestones are in North Yorkshire near Lockton (different to the Bridestones in West Yorkshire also known as 'the Kebs').

Here there are several soft sandstone boulders and pinnacles, situated on moorland. There are over 100 climbs but these are suitable for bouldering and soloing only.

The easiest entry is by the Dalby toll road which has a charge for cars.
