Bizzle crags Northumberland, ENGLAND
Climbs 21 – Rocktype Andesite – Altitude 600m a.s.l – Faces E
Nestled high on the Cheviot is a collection of buttresses offering a small but excellent collection of outstanding routes. Historically the oldest recorded climbing destination in Northumberland, the North Eastern Buttress can also stake a claim to being the highest buttress in the county, taking only a mere 112 years to be properly developed. The climbing is reminiscent of Lakeland routes, and the remote situation, wildlife and stunning views will reward those who adventure into the wilds of the Cheviots.

Climbs at this crag
From Wooler take the A697 north towards Coldstream. After 2.4 miles branch left at Akeld. Continue to West Newton (3.4 miles) where a left turn to Hethpool can be made (1.8 miles). The road from Hethpool to Dunsdale Farm (branching left at Cuddystone Hall) is a public right of way on foot or bike, but at 3.6 miles is a long way. To take a car requires written permission from John Sale & Partners, College Valley Estate Office, Wooler (closed weekends) which should be sought in advance. It costs a small fee, but it reduces the walk-in to a short 0.7 miles.
