An arc of buttresses on the lip of the escarpment opposite Edlingham, just to the east of Widehope Forest. Avoid the crag during spells of wet weather, as the sandstone here loses much of it's strength when wet. The easier bouldering here is on mostly good rock, but care should still be taken. The landings are good, and this is a good place for beginners.
Fell Sandstone Carboniferous, Dinantian
Small flakes and protruberances have a tendency to snap, but the surface is quite hard.
There is no right of way. Attempts to locate the landowner/tenant have failed. Please take care not to damage the fence at the edge of the forest
The highest buttress is about 7 metres with a possible line up dubious rock.
The crag is suited to easy bouldering and actually has some traditional cracks and chimneys.Not a bad place for beginners, although some of the rock is a little "snappy".
The crag is visible from the B6341 Rothbury Alnwick road, and must have had several visits, but until 2000 nothing was recorded. The problems here were documented as a result of visits by Bob Smith, John Dalrymple & Steve Gray.
