Crag features

Impressive situation high above Honister Pass, above a very steep hillside. 70m high. Best routes are Intimidator(E1), The Comet(E2), Hyperspace(E3).

Approach notes

From the summit of Honister Pass, climb Fleetwith Pike and descend to the crag - about 45 minutes.

There is a route named Ozymandias starts between The Comet and Hypospace. As good as Hypospace and also about E3

Did Honister Wall a few years ago. It felt quite serious at only VS due to the hanging flakes and vertical formation of the rock and a little difficult to protect on one of the pitches. The steep scree was quite unstable at that time. Worth a visit but only for a handful of worthwhile climbs ( compared to other local crags)On the plus side, short walk in and exposed feel to the rock due to its impressive position above the pass.
