A smallish crag in the MOD Otturburn Ranges. The majority of routes are HVS - E4 and the crag is an excellent spot for those operating in that sort of range.
Because the crag is on the MOD ranges permission for access should be obtained by phoning 0191 2611046, unless the red flags are down. This is an area of the range used for small arms stuff and you can very often get access even if the flags are flying.Follow the MOD road out of Holystone and on entering the danger area turn left. After 2km the crag becomes visible.
This crag is on a live firing range and therefore subject to military bylaws. DO NOT PICK UP, KICK OR REMOVE ANY OBJECT FROM THE OTTERBURN TRAINING AREA, IT COULD KILL.
Reason: Nesting Birds
There is no access to the crags when the red flags are flying. A phone call must be made to Otterburn Range Control prior to any visit. The contact numbers are (0191) 239 4261 and (01830) 520569. If the crags are open, permission will be granted over the phone and a booking reference will be given. This must be noted and quoted to range control staff if requested. On leaving the range a call must be made to range control so they know you have left the range area. It is imperative this protocol is followed to the letter. Peregrine have been spotted nesting at the crag - prob. best to retreat if they are present when you are climbing.
