Better than it looks when you arrive, providing a nice days climbing entertainment. The bouldering is also first rate.
Might be an idea to check for belays as many relied on stakes.
See north East England Guide.
|In an amazing setting over-looking farndale with exelent soloing on the clean north butress, esecially digimon and captain birdseye. I couldn't find a belay stake however about 10-15 metres back there is a massive crater with a boulder in the bottom if nesecary.|

|There is a stake next to a large rock (hidden in the bilberry bushes) on the North Buttress that can be used to protect Cote Crack etc. The stake in the centre can be used for Motley Crew and Pugwash, along with a firm stance.|
