Park at Holborn on the Chatton Kyloe road. The farm road becomes a bridleway which winds past the crag
A rather nondescript crag about 1km north east of Holborn, but with 2 excellent routes. The crag has been heavily quarried and the rock is poor in places.
Fell Sandstone Carboniferous, Dinantian
There is one good route and one hard, serious one.
Nothing recorded
Sporadic visits over the years produced Close Encounters(Steve Blake, 1978 - the best route on the crag), Raven Mad(Andy Moss, 1978) and the serious The Ayes Have It (Andy Earl, 2002). In between, Bob and Tommy Smith added the other 'routes'.
