Dow Crag

County Durham, ENGLAND

Climbs 1 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 543m a.s.l – Faces N

Crag features
A scatter of small blocks and outcrops a few metres in height in an inexpressibly bleak and grim location. Are you fed up with rhyolite and endless queues for 'Eliminate A' but still fancy making a name for yourself with a 'prestigious' first ascent on a Dow Crag? This could be just the ticket for you! Gritstone and no crowds (yet). If you aren't very fussy or particularly bright then I guarantee you won't be disappointed (possibly).

Access notes
Park by the Cumbria/County Durham border at the summit of the B6276 Brough to Middleton road. Walk south east over moorland along the border fence for about 15 minutes with a growing sense of disillusion until you get there. Yes, this is it.
