Guidebooks

Nice crag, good view back up Borrowdale. Needs more traffic, some of the less popular climbs have been reclaimed by Mother Nature. The only cleanish ones were Rub Off, Brush Off, Fancy Free (bit mossy in places), The Boj Eliminate, The Reiver, Front Runner higher up is OK, but initial slab getting mossy. We cleaned what we could by hand and I managed to clean out a couple of the placements on Rub Off with a nut key.

Nice crag - quiet place, nice rock, nice routes. A bit grubby when we went there last year and don't even think about it when the midges are out - purgatory!!! Makes a good day combination with Sergeant Crag Slabs.
