An excellent bouldering crag on the southern end of Beanley Moor. It catches the afternoon sun in summer and is in a superb location on the moor.
Fell Sandstone Carboniferous, Dinantian
Excellent hard clean sandstone. There are some parts with ironstone protuberances which can be unreliable, and there are also a few mineral veins which can be brittle.
The crag is on CROW land
No recorded routes.
Excellent problems on clean, hard rock. The landings are pretty good. There is no thuggy roof climbing here and the problems consist of quality low grade stuff and even better quality mid grade problems.
Other interesting stuff:
A few hundred metres farther around the escarpment are some important cup and ring markings.
The crag seems to have escaped the attentions of locals until 2011 - 2013 when John Dalrymple and Bob Smith had the pleasure of their own private crag for over a year.
