Bob bouldering at Goats Crag Northumberland © Andy Birtwistle

Crag features

Single pitch routes. Excellent bouldering. The rock is biscuity higher up, and so the protection can be unreliable.

Approach notes

On Goatscrag Hill. Ask at the farm. Restricted access in spring and early summer because of nesting birds and lambing.

NW of the road between Millfield and Lowick, signposted to Roughting Linn. Park at the road.

Worthwhile routes. Rock is better quality on northern side. Grading a bit hit and miss.
