Evening on The Flakes at Great Wolfrey © JamesTurnbull97

Crag features

The ultimate in moorland crags. Good rock, fine views and unspoiled. What more could you ask for (apart from it being nearer to the road that is)?
A great mix of routes and problems. Go with a few people and take mats and gear though there is a great bouldering circuit and a fine set of routes if either is your preference.

Some very good bouldering and route additions since the guide came out. Bouldering update on Unknownstones website.

Approach notes

From Grimwith Reservoir parking (notices of any closures posted here and on YDNP website though these are rare). Around the left side of the lake and up to the track. Around to the second valley leading to the moor.
Follow the rising track past mine and grouse breeding structures then up onto the moor and a view of the crag. About 1 hour from the road
