Crag features

Several buttresses 35-100m high. Express Crack(E1), Hogs Back(MVS), Dandle Buttress(D), Sadgill Wall(MS). Mixed routes in winter, rarely in condition.

(Dandle Buttress seems to have had serious rockfall on first pitch - probably after winter 2018. An alternative approach up the pinnacle and onto the slab on the right is needed.)

Approach notes

Thirty minute easy walk from the end of the tarmac in Longsleddale.

No Access Issues

Raven were reported as nesting on Sadgill Wall in 2019, but on a later site visit a nest couldn't be identified. Please report any sightings of nesting raven (or peregrine) to
