Crag features

A small cliff overlooking the village of Barton. Mostly covered in thick Ivy.At the foot of a gully in the centre of the cliff is a small cave which 1500 years ago was a Wolf Den (the remains of the wolves and their prey can be seen in Wells Museum). As the cliff is North Facing and exposed to the weather it can be a good place for winter climbing practice.

Approach notes

Best reached from the Crook Peak/Wavering Down footpath.


No guides found for this crag

still couldn't find den. Enough rock, although not too solid in places, to put up some routes. Esoteria rules here.
