Early season at Peter Dale © mark20

Crag features

Short and punchy routes, most of which were cleaned and re-bolted in 2022/3. The rock is generally good, the Main Buttress gets the afternoon sun and dries quickly after a shower. North-West buttress gets more shade. Some routes can seep after heavy rain and require a day or two to dry. Mainly sport climbing, with a few low 6s but the best routes are in the high 6s and low 7s. The better trad routes have been cleaned and either have a rope and ring lower off on crag top trees, or a bolted belay. 

Approach notes

The best parking in at the south end of the dale. Room for 4 cars completely off the road. Follow the valley path North for 10mins to the crag.

The land is CRoW Open Access so you have a right to be here. The dale is popular with walkers, and a SSSI so please be respectful - sensible parking, no big noisy groups, dogs on leads, take all litter home with you. etc.

Pretty location but i'm not convinced it is a crag that was worth developing/re-equipping. Lack of strong lines, some disposable holds and stiff grades will put most folk off more than a curious initial visit.
