Crag features
On a wooded slope, the crag is a series of buttresses which are in varying states of returning back to the hillside. There is, howver, enough for a visit. Single pitch stuff.

From the Thrunton Woods Forestry Commission car park. Go along the road until a track appears on the left. Follow this and after 1.5 km the crag is seen on the right. Alternately follow the tracks through the woods (best approached this way by Mountain Bike).

Take care! This crag is not much used these days and always had the reputation for being more friable than most Northumbrian sandstone outcrops (!).
