Crag features

Knitsley. At six metres high the routes can be soloed but the unstable finishes do not encourage this. The low level traverse in broken by an easy slabby area. That said, an odd hours climbing could be had here. The crag is enveloped under a leafy canopy by the trees late summer and early autumn which blocks out the evening sun and can make the atmosphere less pleasant than the spring. The quarried sandstone is generally solid but with some dubious holds and care is important especially at a high level. The crag is disappointing and it is probably true to say that the extra effort of getting to Howns Gill for the longer low level traverses would be rewarded with a better workout that can be obtained here.
