Crag features

The rock is a conglomerate of limestone and sandstone in a very strong natural cement. An idyllic location, in a green grassy field by a beck.

Access Banned

Currently banned year round by the landowner. Negotiations are ongoing - any climbing that takes place whilst the ban is in force is likely to antagonise the access situation.

Guidebooks

Access no longer allowed in any way.

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 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.
