Crag features

A wall of perfect, solid limestone situated in a peaceful and sheltered location just off the footpath that skirts the west side of Crummackdale and just behind Beggar’s Stile Crag. Being limestone it will seep below the overhangs in wet weather but otherwise quick drying. The landings are pretty flat but mats make sense.


Approach notes

Leave the A65 and drive into Austwick, pass the triangular junction heading east and after a short distance turn left (Townhead Lane – just after the school and as for Robin Proctors Scar approach). Keep going uphill and the road becomes a track which is drivable as far as a junction with another track coming in from the right and a ‘No Cars’ sign. Park sensibly on the left here. The track continues to Crummack Farm then a footpath goes up the valley (not the one going off uphill to the left). At the head of the valley a stile is reached at the left end of Beggar’s Stile Crag/Moughton Scars. Cross the stile and continue for 250 metres. The main area is in a small valley to the left (west) with the right-hand area in a parallel one a little further on.


Excellent venue. Main Area the meatier problems with the small overhang suffer seepage. I definitely would return for these in the summer/ prolonged dry spell :) Took us nearly 1 hour to walk in 40 to to walk out.

Good rock in a quiet and beautiful setting. Sheltered but may seep. 30-40 mins walk in.
