Most of the new named problems I have added from the new YMC guidebook are probably duplicates of some already included with just numbers. Moderator to sort and move ticks as appropriate please. As others have said this is a pleasant spot but most of the micro-routes seemed way over-graded to me.

A great little spot - the rock is perfect silver moorland grit. The walk in from Stump Cross is a lot easier than it looks; just don't fall into any of the local mining heritage!

An idyllic crag for a warm summer's evening.
