Cats Tor/ Oldgate Nick © davidj

Crag features

The main feature is a large roof climbed by Catapult (E5), with easier slabby routes to the left and bouldering below and right.

Approach notes

Oldgate Nick is approx 2km south of Windgather Rocks. Car park just N of the T junction 0.5km N of the crag. Easiest access is from the ridge track but this involves climbing a wall (no gate). 

Access Advice

There have been access issues here in the past (and the simplest access involves climbing a wall) so a low profile is a good idea.
