Climbs at this crag
Access is via the summit ridge, the correct descent point can be hard to find on a first visit.
Approach from either the Pennine Way from Dale Head (roadside parking at SD843724) or footpath from Brackenbottom (parking, cafˇ & toilets in Horton in Ribblesdale).
At the junction of the footpath and Pennine Way at SD837728, the right hand end of the crag (facing in) is visible on the skyline, above and behind a band of broken limestone.
Continue along the Pennine Way to the summit. Cross the wall and walk back along the wall, keeping it on your left hand side and following two gentle bends to the left. After approximately 500 metres and at the closest point of the wall and cliff edge, walk directly away from the wall. This leads to a depression in the cliff edge which is the top of the descent route.
