Crag features
A smallish crag in the MOD Otturburn Ranges. The majority of routes are HVS - E4 and the crag is an excellent spot for those operating in that sort of range.

Access notes
Because the crag is on the MOD ranges permission for access should be obtained by phoning 0191 2611046, unless the red flags are down. This is an area of the range used for small arms stuff and you can very often get access even if the flags are flying.Follow the MOD road out of Holystone and on entering the danger area turn left. After 2km the crag becomes visible.
