Desperandum, Snotterdale © John Lavelle

Crag features

A couple of spaced buttresses in the Plantation, with Desperandum E2 tackling the steep crack system and some quite short, but ace routes further right.

Seem to keep reasonably clean.

Approach notes

Walk up Snotterdale and take a right up the track. On your left before you reach a wall you should see a few buttresses, this is the far right hand side..

Desperandum, the scoop finish, Sixth Sense, Soothsayer, Myth, Excalibur and now Snotterdictomy are all well worth the effort. There's some great bouldering to be had too.
