Northumberland, ENGLAND

Climbs 9 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude 440m a.s.l – Faces ?

Crag features
Described in previous guides as “not worth the walk” the crag is far far from the madding crowds located somewhere just past Tipperary. Definitely is one for explorers. The rock is of the same good quality as its neighbours and the routes are good, often with the crux right at the top.


Park in the forestry commission car park between Lordenshaw and Great Tosson, just south of Rothbury. From here walk past Simonside and Coquet View until you reach Ravensheugh. From here head directly for the small cairn seen on the horizon which is slightly beyond middle Earth. The further you go the more obvious track becomes and it leads to the trig point and cairn on the top of Tosson Hill. (2.7 miles)
