Crag features

Clean slab of excellent rough rock between 11m and 15m high. Up and left of upper buck crag (below Dropping crag). Mostly good protection on all routes.

Approach notes

Parking in the Birks Bridge car park (54.385339, -3.179405), follow the unmetalled track up until a path on the R (54.381364, -3.188217). Take the R option when this path forks (just after the muddy section), and then (at 54.382112, -3.192062) bushwhack up an old forestry access track (visible on the satellite images) which leads past below the crag (and on to Upper Buck Crag). Look out for a small cairn at the junction with the old forestry track.

Really nice crag offering short climbs on good, rough rock. Pro is ok but belays at the top take a bit of finding (it's all there). Superb outlook across the valley towards the Coniston fells. Approach path is okay initially but final few hundred metres is over very rough, tussocky terrain which needs a dry spell or waders!

This is a nice little crag and the rock offers great friction. Protection is reasonable. Catches the sun from early to approx 1.30pm
