Approach notes
Approach as for Far Crag from the Yorke

Access notes
Approach as for Far Crag from the Yorke’s Folly (Guisecliff) parking. Follow the path up to the stile in the wall and on towards the edge of the moor then contour using indistinct tracks. By far the easiest is a more direct approach is along the shooting track from the High Crag parking though, if shooting parties are around, this may be best avoided to steer clear of disturbance. A third alternative is from the other side of the valley.
