George Wright on Nitting Haws scramble © Crofty

Crag features

Exceedingly convenient if you happen to be staying at the Hollow Farm campsite - especially on the upper tier. The ridge offers a decent grade 2 scramble, but it, like the rock climbs themselves prove pretty damn slippy in wet weather (socks advised). The views are superb, but there is significantly better climbing in the dale. Still, if you want to get away from the crouds of Corvus and Shepherds and find yourself some interesting sport, then this isn't too bad a choice.
