This is no doubt its a really nice place with views to die for & waterfalls down the road to cool off in but i think it needs more traffic as it is ridiculously gritty & holds did break on me nearing the top which is disconcerting. I will return with a brush....hopefully!

This small south-west facing roadside gritstone crag is situated in Birkdale near the summit of the B6270 Kirkby Stephen to Thwaite road. The crag is very obvious and it seems most likely that it will have been climbed on in the past, but, as no record has been found, the climbs have been named and graded. The crag is nowhere more than 7 metres high and is of good quality, though it can be a bit over “gritty”. The climbs are described from right to left.
