Climbs at this crag
Lies on a moorland used for grouse shooting. Ring Peter Rowe on 01748 866 233 to confirm that no shooting is taking place.
Placed in the middle of nowhere between Reeth in Swaledale and Barnard Castle. A minor road between these two is followed to Surrender Bridge. Park here, and walk along the gravel track leading west to the Old Gang Smelt Mills. Follow the obvious old flue straight up the hill to the crag.
Alternatively, park 0.25 mi N of Surrender Bridge and walk across the moor to the west.
The first route described is the one preferred by the estate (though it's on access land so please yourself!). However, it's also guaranteed to take you straight to the crag, which the other route isn't!
30 minutes either way.
