Crag features

The obvious series of small buttresses and boulders across the valley from the Wainstones. Look pretty poor until you get up close. Bouldering is actually better than that at the Wainstones, but most of the 'routes' are really just high-balls. [Jamie 6/05]

Approach notes

Wander directly over from the Wainstones, then turn left to walk just up-hill of the drystone wall which runs some way beneath the crag. 10-15 mins from Wainstones

Guidebooks

Advise not to go in middle of bracken, hacking through bracken rather tiresome.
