The coastal area of Northumberlnd, From Warkworth northwards is justifiably famous for it's outstanding natural beauty. Almost as justified is its reputation for a dearth of decent crags. With the exception of the splendid Jack Rock, none of the crags are really very good although on a good day, Cullernose has some fine routes..
