Access notes
No dogs are allowed at the crag. Park at Embsay Reservoir, SD 999544, then walk along the side of the reservoir to the access point onto Barden Moor. Cross the stile onto the moor and follow the path steeply uphill for a few hundred metres until a stile is reached which enables the wall to be crossed to reach the rocks. [Rod Witham]
