Restricted Access

From Bellingham take the westerly minor road just after the bridge and opposite the cemetary. Follow this for 3 miles and turn up to High Cairpeth farm. Park on the verge just before the farm between the sheep pen and sheds. Let Mrs Johnson the farmer (friendly) know you are going up. No dogs.

Take the good track towards the cottage but branch off partway aiming for a gate on the skyline. Go through this and follow a vague track leftwards around the minor rocks, then after a few hundred yards branch right to the crag itself.

Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 30 March to 8 July

Reason: Nesting Birds

Peregrines are nesting at the crag. Please do not visit until the restriction is lifted.

8m. One of the best highballs around. Starting on the obvious flake at the base of the overhanging wall, climb directly upward via brilliant moves and perfect holds. Top out via slopers into a small dish.
