Ten minutes from the parking place below the crag. Go along a small overgrown path, 15m NE of the parking place, and up throught the gate. Turn right and head SW for approximately 60m (do not go straight up the hill). Path up to the crag then breaks off left up the hill.

Brings back memories of enjoyable evenings when I lived in W.Cumbria. A useful,quick drying crag to visit if you have a spare afternoon/evening in the area-some short but good routes on Eskdale Granite.The main slab is used occasionally by the nearby OBMS, it has (or did have ) a large BOLT belay above the main slab
