My first outdoor lead :) Veterans Way VD* © saph

Crag features

A reasonably good Dolerite crag. One E5, but everything else is Diff to HVS. The 'Definitive' guide was produced by the Wanneys Climbing Club. Veterans Way represents probably the best protected V Diff in Northumberland. Site well worth a visit. A full guide is at

Approach notes

From Alnwick bypass take the B1340, signposted to Alnwick, Denwick & Seahouses. Turn right through Denwick and then right again towards Longhoughton. After a mile, turn right at the cross-roads go past the crag. Park in a layby opposite the drive to Ratcheugh Folly. Follow the track at the edge of the wood until under folly and then go straight up to the crag. Alternately, from Alnwick take the A1068 signposted to Alnmouth and Ashington for 2 miles until a left turn is taken towards Longhoughton. Do not park in the triangle of grass under the crag, this will only draw the attention of gamekeepers who will wonder what you're up to. Ask the lady at the folly to let her know you're on the crag.

The middle section is a bit overgrown. South of Narrow Buttress is fine.
