Approach notes

For the South West Buttress we found the Yorks Limestone guide book to be misleading. Better to say "a quarter mile beyond where Waterfalls Walk crosses the road cross a cattle grid, which is directly below the crag, and park on the grass on the left. Note: you should go half a mile further to pay in the honesty box at the farm. Walk back over the cattle grid and follow the wall up to the crag.

Good and friendly campsite about 5 mins drive from the crag:

Exposed crag open to wind from valley. All 5 routes we did were polished, some severely, which added to the grade in my opinion. Some really nice lines though. 10 minute walk in.

There's got to be some way the routes on this page can be swung into some sort of order...?

Great outlook. Good for evening soloing action apart from ropey landings.

There is no shortage of quality routes, but a number of climbs appear to be undergraded. E.g. the \"Diff\" on Bay Wall is at least VDiff and \"Skelton Scoop\" is certainly a strenuous VDiff. A good crag, but perhaps be careful not to try to push your grade.
