Climbs 40 – Rocktype Sandstone (hard) – Altitude 260m a.s.l – Faces NE

Crag features
The crag is in need of much love. It is green and over grown, but there is the posibility for some good, and possibly hard routes here I am sure. There are also so hard looking unclimbed hanging aretes. However, the bouldering hear, although not extensive, is superb, especially if combined with the nearby thorgill boulders further north or camp hill just over the moor toward castleton.

Access notes
The farmer below the crag is opposed to climbers crossing his land and there are notices about this. Parking is available at the top of chimney bank, where a walk north for around 15 minutes along the old railway line brings you to the moor above the crag, it is best to use a ordinace survey map to find it. It would be nice to give this crag a clean up some time. - contact me if you're psyched!
