Crag features

The scar is about half a mile long with an open aspect. Be wary of the grades as past access difficulties have hindered systematic checks. Care should be taken of loose rocks and holds on some routes.

Approach notes

Follow the minor road NE from Marske (Cordilleras Lane)uphill onto Markse Moor. About three-quaters of a mile past a cattle grid a bridle way leaves the road. Follow this and where it descends towards Marske Bridge then leave it and head up to the top of the scar keeping to the right of a wall. About 20 minutes.

The far left of the crag (routes 32 to 42 in the old guide) are on CROW access land. Climbing is only allowed on the remainder from 1st Feb to 31st July.

Restricted Access

No issues reported.
Ooops! My flags don't show up for other users of Google Earth. However, Humes Gully descent is clearly visible close to Moomintroll Pinnacle. Moving N/NW along the edge, the big chimneys (Blue Funnel, Yo-Yo and Chockstone) are prominent indentations parallel to the line of the edge.
