Scared but happy on the crux of Rock And A Hard Place, soft E3 / V3, Windmore End © Fiend

Crag features

A long escarpment of quarried limestone. The crag is exposed to the elements and quite capable of living up to its name. The rock is quick drying and climbable at any time of the year.

Approach notes

From Brough take the B6276 towards Middleton in Teesdale. After two miles a minor road branches off to the right. To reach the left-hand section of the crag, continue past this and park beyond the next bend near a gate on the right. Go through this gate and walk up the field to the crag. For the right-hand section, take the minor road. There is room for several cars in a small space beyond the cottage of Windmore Green. Further along the road a gate allows access to the field, and the crag is quickly reached by slanting up the hill below an old lime kiln.
Shut all gates and take care not to damage any dry stone walls!

Restricted Access

The crag is in three sections - divided by two walls. The middle section is directly behind the cottage. Update (02/ 06/08) - The BMC are currently involved in discussions on access with the local Parish Council. We request climbers avoid left hand section for the time being.

The wall at the top of the crag marks the start of CROW land, hence the crag is outside of the CROW area.
