Access notes
Owned by the RSPB. Group use (particularly by outdoors centres) is not allowed.

This crag is very hard to find the first (or even the second or third) time. It is best reached from the highest point on the Warton to Crag Foot road (GR SD487724). There is a five bar gate (memorial sign on wall adjacent) on the NE side of the road with a small parking spot about 80 metres NW. Follow the track through the gate till it peters out near two old baths. Ignore path continuing to a prominent gate in the same line. Instead, bear right towards a fence about 100m away. From the fence corner go left up a grassy sward to cross a stile through another barbed wire fence. The path leads quickly to a rocky outcrop (bit of wall visible on your right). Go right above the outcrop and contour for about 80m to find a small but well-worn path through dense scrub on your left. This path emerges soon on more open terrain – bear left over a bit of sloping limestone pavement. The top of the crag – it lies in a bit of a hollow – may be seen about 100m ahead. The rest is obscured by scrub and trees till you get close. 10 minutes from road if you don’t get lost.

does anyone know the climb between deadwood crack and lone tree gully. It is a really nice climb up the rib with good gear on small wires.

In between the dross there are some great lines worth seeking out on Plum Buttress. Good winters afternoon venue.
