Topic - Crags for easy climbing near Newcastle this weekend

MB42 - on 13 Mar 2014

Given the rubbish weather in Scotland it looks like theres a good chance I'll be visiting a friend in Newcastle this weekend and hoping to get out for a days climbing, he climbs very rarely so looking for easy stuff (VS and down) and not too far (about 1.5 hrs drive from Newcastle at most).

Been to Peel/Crag Lough before which fits the bill but only in Summer, whats it like in winter? Suggestion seems to be it will be rather character building in the winds forecast.

Don't know any of the other Northumberland crags, any recommendations for ones good in winter and with reasonable easier routes would be great. UKC map suggests Brimham area might just be in range too, would be nice to get back on grit but whats it like on a windy day?

Any suggestions gratefully received, cheers.
