Crag features

Fox Crag ilies high on the hillside, while below it, Yew Barrow Crag is a small square face, partly hidden by a large tree. Some good compact climbing. Fox Crag GR SD205918, Yew Barrow SD203918

Approach notes

See Duddon & Wrynose guidebook. Approach to Yew Barrow can be a bit bracken infested, Fox Crag less so

Crag details updated - Yew Barrow is included as a separate buttress. Prior to the new guidebook, there was some double-claiming of first ascents and confusion about the crag names

Yew Barrow crag is virtually hidden behind large tree some way below Fox - difficult and determined access in bracken but diagonal paths can help - the 2* HVS is nice rock and straightforward with adequate gear

If the bracken is high, consider somewhere else -- there is no option except bashing through it all, with all that that implies (e.g., ticks)

Routes Deadwood Crack to Cul de Sac appear to be for what's called Yew Barrow Crag in the 2020 FRCC Duddon guide.
