Crag features

The crag is made up of 4 main sections; the crag itself is high up on the moorland up to a height of 11 metres, the popular Crag Boulders lower down from the crag and can be seen from the bottom, the Trackside boulders over to the west and then the Paradise and Seaview boulders which are further west than the Trackside boulders.

There are other boulders around (such as the Bad Moon boulder) The rock is brilliant untouched gritstone but is a little gritty after the winter, there are routes and problems of all grades from font 3 all the way up to an E10.

Approach notes

NO DOGS.

New "No Parking" signs up on the green near the gate and nook near opposite the parking for the houses.

Went up here on Saturday 27th August - was closed for shooting! Sign on the gate gave dates - which were confirmed with a local shepherd. Not sure where you can check before driving up there - looked like shooting days continued into September - but RAD gives no dates.

Been here a number of times and i can say that (apart from the walk in) its my favourite crag in Lancashire! It has some of the best gritstone climbing i've been on and it has a great view too! The only downside is the walk in (notice how its been mentioned twice) and the fact that because its not as popular as other locations and its so exposed, the climbs are a little gritty. So take a brush for some problems. Recommended!

Very fun bouldering, and the only grit in the UK with a sea view! Lost half the skin on my shins trying jubilee tower. It's not grit climbing until someone loses some of their epidermis.

This place has awe inspiring views over the sea to Lancaster and Blackpool. It can be windy too. It is a bit of a stretch up to the top, and there are no clearly defined paths from the roads to the boulders or the crag itself. You can pick bilberries at the right time of year. However, once you are there, it is great. The friction is excellent, there are routes of a variety of grades, and you can solo at lots of the climbs on the main crag with a bit of imagination. A great day out, especially when the midges are blown away, as well as the cobwebs.
