Crag features

Long routes, mainly Extremes. Best routes - Ribboletto(E4), Sword of Damocles(E1), Cambridge Climb(VD).

It gives some brilliant mid-grade winter climbing, some of the more recent routes are well worth it.

Approach notes

One and threequarter hours uphill from the Old dungeon Ghyll Car park (arrive early at weekends!)
