Crag features

One of Northumberland's finest crags. Good routes are evenly spread throughout the grades, except at the very top and bottom ends. Bouldering is less extensive than in the Woods, but there are some excellent problems.

Approach notes

Turn off the A1 at Fenwick and head towards Lowick. Turn left at the cross roads before Lowick. The crag can be seen on the left. Park considerately near the gate and follow the track to the crag.

Guidebooks

Northern England

The book is a selected route and crag guide although it still manages to pack over 2350 routes between its covers, spread across 44 crags. The main focus is on routes of all grades from Moderate to E9, but the best bouldering is also described.
More info
lots (!) of ticks about (early june) - worth taking repellant and doing a thorough check at the end of the day.

Fallen block from Chris's Arete https://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=294383 Location of block https://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=294384 Don't think it will affect things much, gives bigger ledge to stand on.
