Crag features

A sheltered crag in a small wood. Noted for its bouldering with good traverses and some short "Up and Jump Off's" The routes are rarely done. Very often dry when other places are wet because of its easterly aspect and overhanging nature.

Approach notes

Follow on the old A1 out of Alnwick to a large layby on the top of a hill. The crag is along the side of a fence on the E side of the road. L

Access Banned

Informal access arrangements have been suspended by the landowner. Climbers have been requested not to visit until further notice - BMC are working on this
