Please refrain from climbing outside

Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.

At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.

We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

Crag features

Two walls (plus the triangular Apex well down the hillside) providing varied climbing, mostly in the Extreme grades.The difficulty, the fact they are not often repeated and shady nature of the climbs makes it likley they will need a brush before being climbed. However, their quality makes this a worthwhile chore! 

Approach notes

A good though narrow path leaves the valley and climbs close to the ghyll to the left of the crag, eventually reaching the big Cam Crag Boulders (warm up potential). Go left from here to flank a steep buttress and traverse across to the Lower Crag. The Upper Crag is just up to the right.
