The crag was used heavily by OBMS Ullswater in the early 80's (OBMS had an annex in Musgrave)most of the polish came from this period.

i was disappointed and spent no more than an hour there before leaving to go somewhere else!

i climbed on this crag a few months ago and found it quite easy, i was ready to solo to the top but my hubby being over-protective wouldnt let me so i just went half way ! did lots of traversing as it was quiet that day. what is the name of the crag across the road ????? i never saw that. drove onto 'windmore end' crag to have a look at that- was misty as hell wen i got there and was raining so never managed to climb on it - arrrrggg was so looking forward to having my first climb on here- i drove a very long way up there too -from Lancashire !

Pleasant evenings bouldering. Good quality rock, cement like , with positive edges. The polish in places would suggest that this is / was a popular venue. Several faces to play on and 50 meters from road as well. There also appears to be another crag accross the road, but I didnt have time to check it out.

This crag is quite good, not worth travelling a long way to though. It can be easily top roped, and is easily soloable. Its not high.
