300m. Pleasant grade 2 scrambling up the dry gill bed. Interesting scrambling and scenary throughout. The gorge finishes with a large headwall. Tackled direct this gives a short pitch of diff climbing, where a rope and/or climbing shoes may well be appreciated. The crux is at the top so a fall would be nasty. Note: the scrambling can be continued for quite a long way after the Diff headwall (in wet or winter really best to take a short 10m rope and a bit of gear. The scramble continues under the footbridge where there are a few nice steps and a nifty pool traverse and on until the stream levels out where a very handy gate on the left provides escape without any fence hopping.

JudithE 17 May, 2015 - fresh rock fall (within last 12 hours) and a dead snake among the interesting items this time. the pitch of V Diff at the end was nice and dry. Pete spent a moment or two working out how to lead it, I felt weak and managed it on the third attempt with minimal scene, CRG did it quickly and elegantly but with more bad language. Martin cruised it, what with his new hip an' all.

Graeme Hammond 13 Nov, 2011 Solo O/S Great afternoon out with Becky's parents + friends Ed and Chris. Trailled a rope on the harder bits and the 'Diff finish' for some off the group. Some tricky sections with slimy wet rock. Bailed out at the bridge.

Trespasser ??, 2011 - Fantastic place, wondeful long series of ever-increasing scrambles, only final wall defeated us (no rope). Gill was wet & slippy, but virtually no water running through it, almost dry riverbed.

Will Smith 21 Mar, 2009 Lead O/S Michelle's first experience of climbing and a good place to get started. Most of the scrambling is easy and made for good ground to mess around with ropework. There's an interesting corner and a few steep steps. The final diff pitch gave a good taste of easy rock climbing. Overall, a very nice short trip out and a novelty to be scrambling in Yorkshire.

jimorothy ?Dec, 2008 Solo Fantastic winter's day out and highly recommended. While cold and wet the levels of water were only a significant problem on the crux headwall (ducking under the waterfall gave us a healthy soking).
