Can seep so dry days are best. On the other hand it gets very hot in the sunshine.

On the right wing of the crag there are two rare Rock Whitebeam trees, these are some of the only remaining Rock Whitebeam in the Yorkshire Dales and likely represent a genetically distinct population. They are close to the routes Nettle Rash, Britvic Fifty-five and Mettle Nettle. Climber have been reported as damaging one of these by pruning. Under no circumstance should these trees be climbed on or pruned further, regardless of any encroachment onto routes. If climbing and free growth of these trees is not compatible then the affected routes will have to be banned.

 

Rockfax Description
Start up Slimline. Originally the start came in from just right of the crack. Follow the crack until the slabby wall and groove on the left lead to a lower-off just above a small overhang. © Rockfax

Better if you start up the crack.
