Crag features

A superb cliff with the best selection of mid-extremes in the Noerth East. Mostly non-tidal, with thin delicate slabs on the landward side of the ridge, and merciless stamina pitches in the box zawn and outer walls. The outer walls get the evening sun, but a good breeze is useful to avoid any greasiness.

UPDATE AUGUST 2012 - The farmer at Quarryburn Farm appears to have changed his view on cars parking on the grass verge. Recently, cars parked here have had 'no parking' notices glued to their windscreens. Probably best finding somewhere else to leave your car.

UPDATE 2013 - lots of new stakes!

Having read a note on here we parked in the road and walked down the lane. But on returning today (28/6/21) We were approached by Douglas (Farm owner-what a nice chap)  who was extremely civil and friendly and told us that climbers are very welcome to park down the lane beside the ruin. Just be sure to close the gates.

If you were to follow the Eastern fringe of the UK, this is the best venue for the E2-E5 leader north of Bowden Doors! To get anywhere better you'd have to go all the way around the coast to Sheigra.

Excellent venue for anyone climbing in the E2-E5 range
