A compact buttress boasting many worthwhile cracks and interesting highball solos. The classics of Esklets Eliminate, Right Unconquerable and Slip and Fly are not to be missed.
Close to Ralph's Cross take the signposted road NW towards Westerdale and park at a green barrier on the left hand side of the road approximately 1.5 miles north. Tseveral cars on the grass verge if parked with care. Take the very well made “shooters’ road” SSW initially, cutting through Clough Gill and on to Esklets Crag after 2km. It is also possible to approach the crag from Waites House Farm along a public right of way in the Esk Valley.
The crag lies on prime grouse moor so dogs are not allowed. Large groups are discouraged. There have been access problems with this crag and it would be useful to report any difficulties to the BMC.
