Crag features

A secluded Fell Sandstone gorge on the atmospheric Bewick Moor with the Harehope Burn flowing through it.

At its north end, Dove Crag, the gorge has 3 worthwhile buttresses, with some bouldering potential at a long low cave. South of this the gorge opens out for a few hundred metres and then narrows again at Corbie Crags, where a 10 metre buttress rises out of the eastern side of the burn.

Approach notes

There are several ways into the gorge. From Old Bewick, follow the bridleway towards Blaewearie. Continue past the back of the ruin, past an old quarried area and as the path starts to swing back left, head for the gorge, the top of which can just be seen in the valley due east across the moor. Similarly follow the same bridleway from Quarryhouse in the north, to a point just after beyond the small burn. Follow the burn down to the gorge.
