The long main gorge which drains from the Great Moss provides a superb scramble. It is rarely in condition and needs a good dry spell to be climbable.

Can also be ascended in wetsuit etc. when too wet for a dry scramble. Start at Lingcove Bridge (NY227036) it is easily escapable if any of the falls look to serious.

humptydumpty 14 May - Rock-hopped and scrambled, but I guess late Summer and swimming trunks would allow a lot more climbing.

sheelba 24 Jun, 2018 - Great fun, went as direct as possible, not sure what kind of cretin would traverse around the pools as it suggests in the scrambles guide
