Crag features

Two main areas, Upper and Lower Tiers. Good routes in a remote, peacefully and stunning setting.

Up to 44m high on several buttresses providing varied climbing across the middle grades.

 Desperate Remedies(E4), Stern Test(E5), Far from the Madding Crowd(E1) are all nice route.

Many of the routes follow great lines however can occasionally be dirty. Work is currently being carried out to revive any dirty lines on this crag.

Being close to Penrith and the M6 this crag provides an adventurous alternative for the NE Lakes climbing scene.

Approach notes

15 Minutes above Thrang farm in the Martindale Valley.

Climbed here in 2012. Enjoyable routes in a great setting. Some routes a bit dirty but all still climbable

Visited 23 June 2007, did a couple of routes, not going back. Dirty crag, lots of lichen, although "Far from the madding crowd" was worthwhile.
