A 30 foot sandstone buttress rising out of the Harehope Burn. There are some good lines giving some hard bold routes marred only by the unreliable nature of the rock. There is scope for some stuff on the more broken rocks on the opposite bank.
Fell Sandstone Carboniferous, Dinantian
Hard sandstone, but holds have an alarming tendency to snap off.
Good lines, but very bold and more than a little dangerous.
No recorded problems.
The crag has been discovered on several occasions, notably Andy Birtwistle who did some routes on the nearby Harehope Canyon. Unaware of this, the crag was systematically developed by Tim Caterall, assisted by Malcolm Lowerson. Tim pushed the boat out during the drought of 2002 and he and Malcolm bagged the routes described. Some of these may have been done by previous visitors, notably Andy Birtwistle.
