Crag features

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.

Recommended: Fairy Tale Low 6c, Super Skunk, Fallen Arch 5a, Black Wall Traverse 6b, New Dimensions E3 6a, Grandmaster Flash E5 6b,

Approach notes

No dogs - farmland.
From Swainby (on the A172) head south-east on a minor road on the true L bank of the beck that flows through the village, until you can cross the beck by a ford. Continue with care up the road for 3 mi to the road head and park with care.
5 min walk leads to the crag.
