Crag features

A nice little crag with mostly single pitch routes. Descent is made to the left down a small scree and is short and not too difficult. Notable climbs are Tottering Tortoise (VS 5a) which is an interesting crack climb and has seen many excellent and experienced climbers turn back!

Approach notes

The crag can be accessed from Grange by walking up past the campsite as if making for Castle Crag, but striking right up the hillside just after the gate leading out of the trees. Steel Knotts is the first low outcrop of clean rock which is obvious from the path.
