An excellent bouldering crag on the southern end of Beanley Moor. It catches the afternoon sun in summer and is in a superb location on the moor. The problems and grades listed here come from northumberlandclimbing.co.uk where there are photo topos and descriptions.
Many of the ungraded problems look very good. Those in the Pinnacles/Quartz Buttress area look to be high 6's and those on Hunters Wall low and mid 7's
Turn east at the Glanton/Bolton crossroads on the A697 and go straight on for 4.5 miles to roadside parking at East Bolton farm. Take the footpath over the cattle grid and follow the track round the edge of two fields and at the bottom of the hill go straight on across a bridge over Titlington Burn. Follow the track up to the col where it swings right down towards Kimmer Lough. Go straight up the hill on the left across the rocks to a hurdle on the fence. Trend diagonally right across the heather for a couple of hundred metres, crossing a track, until you drop down onto a flat moss with the crag visible on the left. Follow the edge of this moss to the crag - a path soon appears.
The above approach can be very arduous in summer due to deep heather and head high bracken. Take advantage of any existing quad bike tracks, even if they take a less direct route. You could consider using the bridleway from near Craigs House, but this means crossing the ford or stepping stones at 117 186 and then walking across the bog west of Kimmer Lough
