Friable on the whole, many trees for top roping, possible danger with detached blocks high up, catches all available sunlight, very quiet. About 30 to 40ft high. [Chris Reid]
Most of the trees are dead and rotten; if you like everything to move as you climb you won't be disappointed with this place. Think about it: south facing, catches all available sunlight, and 5 mins from the road - It is very quiet for a reason. Go elsewhere!! [Anth Quinn 4/02]
Maybe we were lucky with our route choices, but apart from the top-outs and rotten trees, thought it an excellent little crag. Bonsai (MVS) was a particularly fine route, though of course gets no stars.
No problems but take care not to block gates when parking.
>From Richmond a road runs parallel to the N of the A6108. Follow for 3.7mi to a footpath on the L as you enter a small valley. The path runs to the L; 5 mins walk.
Alternatively, take the same road from the other end, at Marske. Just less than a mile from the village, park on the verge on a hill, just below and opposite a gated gravel track signposted West Applegath. Follow the track, at the first gate turn left through a new gate and walk up and right to the crag. About 5 minutes.
