One and a half hours from Gatesgarth Farm. Farmer charges £4 to park off road. Other parking available nearby.
|This is a big north facing and quite vegitated crag containing one of the great classic routes of the district: Eagle Front.
In dry conditions this is a fine VS (hard) route finishing on top of the ridge; so you need to get the second to carry a sack.
In wet weather it is a nightmare not to be seriously contemplated unless you have got the first three pitches behind you and only the fine final crack to get up.|
