Visible on the east side of the A696. 3 kilometres north of Knowesgate. Cars can be parked on the roadside verge or on the access to a track 100 metres to the north of the crag.
The routes on this small crag have been squeezed in a bit, some may say too much. However, this gives enough routes for a good evening outing in the lower grades. It is also an excellent venue for learning to lead.
The climbs are described right to left.
The small prow shaped buttress 5 metres high.
The next buttress with 5m high walls leading to a deep gully, which provides an easy way down.
