Crag features

The crag in the middle of Appleby! A very worthwhile little sports crag that, typically of the area, is quite minor but also quite idyllic with good picnic potential and nice short routes. Now sporting some slightly harder stuff to go at, courtesy of Neil Davies and Dave Allen.

Approach notes

Access from the car park besides the River Eden, which is reached by turning right at the Royal Oak in Appleby and following the road downhill. The crag can be seen from the car park.

The crag is on private land and access has been granted on the following conditions:
Access is available for bone fide climbers;
Any livestock should not be disturbed;
The gate is left closed;
No litter;
No damage to the property;
No dogs allowed in the field below the crag.

Restricted Access

The crag is on private land and access has been granted by the landowner on the following basis:

- No dogs are allowed at the crag - this is very important as the farmer is happy to allow climbing at the crag, providing it doesn't affect his livestock. A recent incident involving a dog at the crag has jeopardised future access. Following a conversation with the landowner, access for climbing is still allowed, but further incidents could easily result in a total ban. 

- Access is available for climbers only

- Livestock are not to be disturbed

- The gate should be left closed

- No Litter

- No damage to property

Really nice crag with some great routes up it. You might want to bring a brush as some of the holds can be quite dusty.

A surprisingly good crag. The main wall offering the better rock and routes. Some of the easy stuff to right is a bit contrived and dirty and all the holds are a bit sandy. But if are local, or its wet in the Lakes its worth a go. (if the rock is at all wet or has been stay away as it'll crumble) The grades are a bit soft touch so don't put off if you are a VS/HVS leader, you'll love it.
