For those who are unaware climbing is currently banned at Scratchmere Scar. egotiations are ongoing between the landowners and the BMC. Climbing here whislt there is a ban on could adversly affect these negotiations.

A small but pleasant crag. Excellent parking is provided at the farm. Grades tend to be stiff as the crag is steep and protection is often poor.

You may have some difficulty in finding a guide to this crag but some of the more obvious lines Ive found to be good. Protection isnt always good (being sandstone) and I tend to use it as a top-roping venue. Used fairly frequently by groups from Penrith University.
