Queens Crag

Climbs 100 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude 300m a.s.l – Faces NW

Crag features
Not very high, excellent for high balls and hard bouldering on excellent fine-grained sandstone which might need a soft brush early in the year. There is a fine circuit of easier problems, while the classic problems are often high.

Access notes
2 Miles east of Housteads on unmettaled road which heads North off the Military road and goes to Sewingshieds Farm.

Park by a copse of trees just past the farm on the left (usually a derelict land rover there). You might need to ask for permission and might be charged £2 for using the road, and in this case you can park carefully offroad down further down the rough track. The alternative is to park on the minor road further East of the farm track.
