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.

UKC Logbook Description
Excellent climbing on great rock, a hard and devious route to flash. Bolts on the left-hand eliminate confuse the matter and it's best done on two ropes (or risk drag/massive runouts). Climb a thin crack to the break, step up and right onto the face. More hard moves lead up and left to a good flake. Climb steeply straight up on reasonable holds and step right onto the rib, finish leftwards more easily.

βeta: Halfway up, on the left big flake before tackling the bulge, above holds are potentially loose. i pulled one block off while working. Be cautious what you pull on.

βeta: This is a good route and well worth doing. The bolts on eliminates to left and right are confusing though and detract a bit from the best route here.
