Crag features

A selection of buttresses in a moorland setting. Clean, good quality rock, well worth an evening visit. Routes up to 13m high of all grades. Recommended routes are Pondweed Crack (HS 4b*), West's Crack (VS 4c**) and Shy Ann Arete (E1 5b**).

Approach notes

No access problems as known. But it is a tiring walk with no path.
