Approach notes

Park as for Slipstones. Take the normal Slipstones approach until you've gone through the gate onto the moor. Follow a faint path straight on (ie left of the main track). It becomes sketchy, but follow the obvious 'terrace' for a few hundred metres. Eventually you approach a stream branching up to the right. Roughly when you see the trees in the depression with this stream running up, the crag is about 50m down the hill on the left, ie just above the main gill.

The three E2s of Narrow Margin, Class Action and Quantum Leap were all cleaned and climbed on the 22nd October 2017. All are superb and worth having a go at. Cutting Edge (HVS 5c) is also very good and more like a highball 6A/6A+.
