Crag features

Two small buttresses and one larger one. Routes up to E1 but some harder problems either not done or toproped - one very hard wall (cleaned in 1996 but was it done at all?) [Thanks, Justin Sheils]

(Edit: No it wasn't! Certain death awaits all those who try it.)

Approach notes

see guidebook.


Visited this crag and the rhodedendrons were in bloom again. Led Kepwick Crack and the top out on slippery grass was horrendous. Managed to fist-jam a rabbit hole which helped significantly.

Visited October 15th 2006 with rhododendrons in flower ! Top roped Kepwick Crack which would be a little gem but for the very dodgy and scruffy finish. "Offside", which is only a 5m HS was a testing little problem with plenty of gear which is just as well because it also has a dodgy finish. Look out for the belay spikes.
