Topic - Sandy Crag - Northumberland

Adamski1986 - on 09 Jul 2013
I visited Sandy Crag (Northumberland) for the first time on Sunday gone. It's certainly an impressive crag with a load of great lines although not that easy to get to.

The one thing I found surprising was how dangerous the top outs of a lot of the climbs we did were. A lot of the routes would finish and you were climbing up a meter or so of steep loose soil/rocks to find somewhere to put a safe belay in. Has the crag always been like this?

My climbing partner who is slightly more ballsy than I am left the crag saying "They should stop people climbing there, the tops out are lethal!"

All that said, Angel Fingers the classic HVS route is one of the best routes I have ever climbed and luckily shares one of the best belays on the crag with Sandy Crack.
