Turn east off the A697 just south of Powburn and signed for Eglingham. Follow this road for 1km until a right turn signed for Titlington can be taken. A further 1km along turn left for Titlington Mount. Continue for 200m to a lay-by on the left. The crag is on the hillside directly above this
A very good little south facing crag and boulders low down on Titlington Pike, only 7m in height but offering some quite bold leads/solos and well worth a visit. There is some quite extensive good quality bouldering on rocks in the wood.
Fell Sandstone Carboniferous, Dinantian
Access issues:
The crag is on private land. Please ask for permission at Titlington Mount, 500m down the road past the crag. Also keep away from the boulders in the field below the crag, which are guarded by some very large porkers which do not appreciate the finer points of the sitting start and which are quite likely to indulge in a truffle hunt in your trousers.
7 metre solos over fairly decent landings
Excellent bouldering
The routes were initially developed by Paul Linfoot and Taff Hughes, the bouldering was established by Alec Burns
