Chevin Buttress © mark catcher

Crag features

Best to ignore the quarry and go straight to the buttress for some top quality routes - Chevin Buttress (VS), The Waster (E1) and Gronff (E2).

Approach notes

Follow the path westwards from the East Chevin Car Park.

Access Advice

No access issues reported.

Seasonal Restrictions

Reason: Nesting Birds

Update (05/05/10) - Tawny Owls are nesting on the ledge where Central Climb breaks out left. These are substantial birds capable of defending a nest site - please avoid routes on the main buttress until mid-June.

Guidebooks

Northern England

The book is a selected route and crag guide although it still manages to pack over 2350 routes between its covers, spread across 44 crags. The main focus is on routes of all grades from Moderate to E9, but the best bouldering is also described.
