Crag features

Wild and out there. If Esoteric Gritstone bouldering is your thing this is up your street. Anything on The Prune is highball.

Approach notes

Best approach described on the UnknowStones topo for the crag

You are better off parking at the gate on Wath Lane at SE 159668. Follow the track, going right at the fork. The first rocks aren't the crag. The next bit is boggy but once past this you can step over the ruined wall and head straight for the crag.
