Crag features
Robin Proctor Scar, or as it was formerly known Norber Scar, has been redeveloped as a sport crag. In the past it was home to a handful of very serious mid-grade trad routes. The whole crag has been extensively cleaned and bolted, however the nature of the rock is such that much care is needed to climb here safely. The better routes at Robin Proctor's Scar are as good as most at the grade in the local area and a few are worth travelling further for. The view from the crag is one of the best in the Dales and the quick drying nature of the rock and sunny aspect should ensure the Scar's popularity.

Access notes
From the A65, take the turn-off for Clapham (between Settle and Ingleton). Head into the village and at its centre park at the information centre. Walk up the lane until a footpath on the right leads through a tunnel. Walk along the track for about 1km until a footpath sign to Norber is reached. The crag is very obvious from here. Walk across the field and up the short scree slope.

At March 2014, the belay on Just Cruisin is only on 1 bolt - the nut is missing off the 2nd bolt. Also, mid-height blocks on Dr Frank's nightmare are becoming more hollow - keep an eye!

Seem to remember a bit of a brouhaha about this being bolted up - thin ends, wedges, and all that. In my view, the jobs a good un, the crag provides a nice spot for mid-grade sport climbing, with some good sections of sheer, flakey rock. No shelter from anything whatsoever though.
