Crag features

The crag consists of four small South facing blocks, that carry no drainage. The location is somewhat sheltered from northerly wind. The rock quality is mixed. Certainly the North side of the Mother should be avoided if damp as many of the hold are flakes that may break if moist. The majority of the problems are in the mid to high sixes and with many entertaining eliminates there is plenty here to occupy an afternoon or evening. For those operating in the sevens, the Generation Game will make a visit worthwhile. 

Approach notes

From the A1 at Morpeth take the A697 North, through Longhorsley and Longframlington. Approximately 3 miles North of Longframlington the road takes a sweeping left hand bend. Once the road straightens look for a large gravel layby on the left, opposite a gate. Park here. (The boulders will have been visible to the North of the road) The crag is just inside the Access Land boundary and as such climbing is permitted. However, the most direct and quickest approach uses a public footpath over private land. There has been one encounter with the landowner who ‘was unhappy about his land being crossed. To avoid conflict please use the approach described, lock gates and be meticulous about the ‘Country Code’ basics. The described approach makes use of a public footpath to reach the Access Land that the crag sits in. Opposite parking go through gate on the North side of road, marked bridleway. Turn right through gate and follow an indistinct path next to a collapsed (overgrown) wall. Follow this down to a small gate (Sometimes muddy.) The blocs are 150m over to the right.
