Crag features

A fine, small, sunny crag, with a few good single pitch routes, mostly around E2-ish or E6-ish!

Approach notes

From Bellingham take the westerly minor road just after the bridge and opposite the cemetary. Follow this for 3 miles and turn up to High Cairpeth farm. Park on the verge just before the farm and ask permission from the friendly owner. Take the good track towards the cottage but branch off partway aiming for a gate on the skyline. Go through this and follow a vague track leftwards around the minor rocks, then after a few hundred yards branch right to the crag itself.

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 1 March to 30 June

Reason: Nesting Birds

Peregrine have been spotted at the crag.

April Fool is E1 5b. Shine On, Mad March Hare and Harris Tweed probably worth an extra star.
