Birk Gill Crag

Climbs 29 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 250m a.s.l – Faces S

Access notes
Park as for Slipstones. Take the normal Slipstones approach until you've gone through the gate onto the moor. Follow a faint path straight on (ie left of the main track). It becomes sketchy, but follow the obvious 'terrace' for a few hundred metres. Eventually you approach a stream branching up to the right. Roughly when you see the trees in the depression with this stream running up, the crag is about 50m down the hill on the left, ie just above the main gill.
