A fine, remote crag high on Masham Moor with some good routes up to 10m and some excellent bouldering. Don't be put off by the shooting lodges that sit in front of the main buttresses. This is a good crag with great and rather unique rock - though, as with other moorland locations, this can need brushing. The route history is well documented and initial bouldering was developed some years ago by, amongst others, the Sowden/Rhodes combo and Jamie Moss who left their explorations unrecorded. These, and a lot of excellent new additions by Dave Sutcliffe and friends, Paul Clarke, Alex Thompson, Dave Turnbull and others unknown, provide a very good circuit. Landings of the boulder problems are often, though not always, flat. However, the problems can be quite high so a couple of mats are a good idea. As mentioned, lots of new and rediscovered problems so grades and names are tentative. Please email any details.
Open access land. Several ways in, ranging from 30 minutes to 1 hour. Probably best to avoid in shooting season. Dogs are discouraged and need to be kept under close control and restricted to public rights of way. Check Natural England website for general and date limited restrictions to access.
The shortest way is from 100m west of Summer Side Farm - can be muddy after rain. A much longer way is from the Sypeland parking and along the tracks to drop in from above the crag.
