Crag features

The main event is a superb overhanging piece of sandstone conglomerate, innudated with in situ pebbles, in many horzontal bands. Often in condition when the rest of the peak is not. The rock features many sharp pockets, positive crimps, the odd pebble, and several slopers. Undoubtebly the venue of choice in the dale with many classic problems, from Thorns through to Warchild. Recently (2008) the access to the crag changed with it being enclosed by a fence, 50m below the crag. This is a conservation measure. Climbing is still permitted here, but please use the gate as the sole means of access.

Outlying blocks have been included here, the database is described in order you would approach them. Rainroach and its oddities (quite a way left of here) have been included here as they form a natural continuation.
