Sunny November day. 9 degC and 21 mph westerly wind onto a west-facing crag at 310m sounds unpromising, but it was fine. The valley is narrow and the ridges on either side rise over 400m. The wind was much weaker on the face, but enough to dry it out after heavy overnight rain. The crag was a nice place to be as it warmed up in the sunshine. Last climbs of the day in glorious autumnal sunset.

On leaving the crag on Monday eveing (17/06/13) we were approached by game keepers who said we shouldn't be climbing here. There are no restrictions on the RAD so the BMC have been notified. Will update when I know more.

went last night, got accosted by gamekeeper afterwards- but it's all on open access land so should be fine. Big fence around the top. Good rock, steep and grading (from smartboys online) to be treated with suspicion. Top outs horrible and midgy last night but beautiful quiet place

Beautiful place. Great if you're operating at HVS-E2.

The rock is excellent & some routes do look good. Will be back armed with a rope to do the crack of Right Unconquerable & i`d like to get rid of some heather & mud from the harder routes. Was`nt much of a walk in either, parked at the westerdale road at the pond & caught shooters paths all the way practically!

Quality crag, that is now pretty much ignored. No evidence of recent climbing when i've been.
It's a local crag for me and its got plenty on it. Although the grades do demand respect and the topouts are quite challenging, a good place to practice that heather grabbin'!
