An attractively situated collection of boulders and towers of Fell Sandstone on a south facing hillside near Kimmerston. The rock has a reputation for being soft, but it is sound, the landings are good and the climbing is excellent. The bouldering guide describes 49 problems from UK 4b to 6a. These problems seem to have defied conventional wisdom and do not seem to be wearing out - if anything the condition of the rock is improving.

The first recorded activity was by Tim Gallagher, Simon Berry and Dave Barrell during 1990 and 1991 with no known previous development having taken place. Since that time the bouldering has been further developed with efforts from Colin Miln and Isla Watson and the guidebook team of Tim Catterall and Steve and Tina Nagy
