Access notes
From Brough take the B6276 towards Middleton in Teesdale. After two miles a minor road branches off to the right. To reach the left-hand section of the crag, continue past this and park beyond the next bend near a gate on the right. Go through this gate and walk up the field to the crag. For the right-hand section, take the minor road. There is room for several cars in a small space beyond the cottage of Windmore Green. Further along the road a gate allows access to the field, and the crag is quickly reached by slanting up the hill below an old lime kiln.

Shut all gates and take care not to damage any dry stone walls!

This crag is now soorted, in line with the current FRCC guide. Some routes have been merged from the old FRCC PDF.
Climbster - 19/Dec/13

Sorting this lot may take some time, I've started by putting routes in order from left to right.
Climbster - 16/Dec/13

Climbster I expect to see some sensible regrading and restarring now!
Fiend - 16/Dec/13

Further corrections to the ridiculous upgrading in the new guide: Wind Power should still be HVS, Crozzly Wall should still be E2 (or even E1) but 5c for the start, Speeding Like A Jet should be E2 5c. That's for padless leads, all of them are highball boulder problems V1-V3 with pads. Scoop And Wall is easy E2 5c. The Helm is correct in the new guide at E3 6a ** to lead.
Fiend - 30/Nov/13

Got the new guide. Great detail but some very strange things going on with grades. Trouble Without A Cause E4 6b?? It's an easy V4 6b, it wouldn't even be a highball boulder problem let alone a micro-route. Rock And A Hard Place E4 6a?? Soft E3 5c as it always was. TBH most of these climbs should be given primarily highball bouldering grades, and trad grades second, as per the newer BMC guides.
Fiend - 28/Nov/13

Half of the flake on Anticlimbax has fallen off of this climb and the top half of the flake has some movement in it.

falling rock...
jules1990 - 01/Mar/13

There are loads of loose rock on a lot of the climbs here, a friends brand new rope got cut by a falling rope at exactly the halfway mark.
jules1990 - 01/Mar/13

According to the new FRCC guidebook, the left hand section of this crag is currently banned.
Bob - 29/Jul/12

Pleasant little crag, worth a drop into for a quiet evenings soloing on the way to the lakes on A66. Friendly holds, good landings, friendly grades and good moves. The stars on UKC aren't the same as the forthcoming FRCC write up, there are some grand micro-routes here.
Dave Warburton - 01/Jun/10

ive been to have a look at this place - 'Windmore End- certainly lives up to its name cos i travelled from Lncashire to 'Appleby -climbed 'The Hoff' crag a few months ago and agin last week, then onto 'windmore end' again and it was Misty as hell and the crag was very slippery ! wot im saying is that other areas cud be nice and sunny whilst 'Windmore End' is a sheet of mist !
pinkie - 15/Sep/06

Well worth a visit, delightful setting overlooking Eden Valley with a level meadow base, landings for solo climbers, beware loose finishes and sometimes friable protection. Stake belays abound.
