Crag features

Yew Cogar is a superb little crag nestled at the foot of a deep and impressive valley approximately 2.5km south west of Arncliffe in upper Littondale. The crag reaches a height of 25m and is overhanging for the whole of its 100m length. The rock is of exceptional quality, especially in the right-hand section which is characterised by some amazing tufa formations. Just under half of the routes can be considered as being true clip-ups so remember to bring your rack.

Approach notes

<b>The access to this crag has changed slightly recently. Please phone Mr. Campbell on 01756 770 269 to ask for permission before climbing.</b>

>From the 28th of May the crag will be on Access Land under CRoW Act therefore no need to phone anyone for permission, However, there are Peregrines nesting above and right of the main buttress. The seem to tolerate climbers providing we do not approach directly down the hill as described in previous guides. The best approach is from the first cattle-grid above Arncliffe descending diagonally to reach the stream 200 metres below the crag. This is also a much easier way to walk out so it makes sense an keeps everyone happy.

No Access Issues

Peregrine and Raven have both nested in this valley in the past but no regular annual restriction is imposed. This may change if a new nest site is found in the Spring. Please check here for updates if considering a visit before July.
