Scugdale - Barker's Crags North Yorkshire, ENGLAND
Climbs 148 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude 310m a.s.l – Faces W
The right hand extension of a pleasant edge of hard sandstone that extends along the rim of this quiet valley. The crag rarely reaches more than 10m in height; for the competent a rope is rarely necessary. Because of the lack of height, many routes only receive a technical grade, offers everything from pleasant slabs to technical cracks and aretes to pumpy overhangs.
Quieter and more secluded than Scots Crag.
