Crag features

This was formerly know as Gate Cote Scar but is more correctly called Knipe Scar, which includes the west crag as well.
Above the B6160 grassington to kettlewell road. East facing, dries extremely quickly. A few bolted routes, and around 50 trad lines. Quite sheltered on a windy day.

Approach notes

Approaching from Kilnsey there is parking for two cars by a gate near a big tree. Walk up to the crag line and cross the fence at a stile like feature.

Northern Limestone : Yorkshire, Cumbria, Lancashire

Northern Limestone : Yorkshire, Cumbria, Lancashire covers some of the best limestone crags in the UK including the big three of Malham, Kilnsey and Gordale. Alongside these titans are numerous other destinations that offer both sport and trad climbing throughout the grades, ranging from the intimidating walls of Blue Scar and Trow Gill to the long lines of newly-developed low to mid-grade sport crags such as Moughton Nab and Giggleswick South. Trad climbing is also well catered for on the walls and escarpments at the likes of Trowbarrow Quarry, Twistleton Scar, Attermire Scar and Witches Quarry.
