Crag features

Park in Middlesmoor car park and then to the crag itself is about an hour and a half on foot.

Please be aware there is no vehicular access and no public right of way along the road itself however there are various public rights of way detailed on a map at Middlesmoor car park.

Use an OS map to find the footpaths and appropriate access routes to the crag.

The crag is on open access land and dogs must be kept under close control at all times:
"You must keep your dog on a lead no more than 2 metres long on open access land."

It is on an area with ground nesting birds so can be closed during nesting season. See the Natural England website for more information.

One buttress of worth with strange weathered features and plenty of bouldering on the surrounding faces.
Super wet. Super green. Super overhanging - Biggest Gritstone roof in Yorkshire?
Summer grit for the radical or lost.

Approach notes

There is a relatively easy walk in starting from the adequate parking by the bench at the entrance to the hamlet of Stean. * Note - if the area is being used for agricultural activities please park elsewhere - maybe back at the cafe for How Stean Gorge after buying a coffee and cake. Follow lanes up, left then back right to the fell gate. Go behind the new fence and take a quad track that follows the wall and then the edge overlooking the ghyll. This leads (a bit indistinct in places) up to skirt the left side of some low boulders the up to a fence at which point the top of the crag comes in to view. Follow the track by the fence to the crag. Just less than an hour up (depending on how much gear/many mats you are carrying) and 45 mins down. In wet weather you need walking boots but you are unlikely to be coming up here in wet weather.
