A small, compact crag of good quality Fell Sandstone on the moor high on Bigges Pillar. The setting is very fine, in an area of moorland and moss amongst Edlingham Woods.
Fell Sandstone Carboniferous, Dinantian
Hard sandstone, generally good quality but with some snappy flakes on a couple of lines on the main wall. A bit lichenous in places, judicious use of a bristle brush may be needed.
Only one short route.
A smashing little bouldering crag. The bouldering is on good rock and there is much in the easier grades. The landings are good - an excellent place for the VS/HVS climber to spend a few hours bumbling around. There are also a few much harder problems on perfect rock.
The crag was initially developed in 2001/2002 by John Dalrymple and Steve Gray. Later visits by the Bob Smith/Earl & sons teams created some harder problems on the steep wall of the boulders. Recently, Chris Graham has added Launch Sequence, a hard micro route on the main face, and confirmed the quality of the other problems.
