The climbs are not listed in the same order as the guide book and there appears to be discrepancies, in the routes included on here compared to the new guide. There are a lot of sandbag potential.|

Not an indifferent crag at all, but a delightful venue, save it for a warm summer evening.
The current guidebook only shows off a small amount of this crags potential. Rough rock, stunning views, and can get a bit wild - a perfect Lakeland crag

Great for first lead, plenty of routes around

SW facing. Great beginner's crag. Only 15 minutes from the road along a good path yet it's still quiet. Very, very grippy rock but don't fall - they don't call it Long Scar for nothing! However, there's no polish and there's little growing on it as it catches a lot of sun and wind (so can be chilly too). But, the holds tend to be smallish and take the guidebook grades with a heavy pinch of salt (some up, some down).
