Advice Coe Crag

The crag is on the northern scarp of Coe Crag Hill and has superb views across the Aln Valley to the Cheviots.
It is a compact well weathered sandstone crag with a genuine mountain crag feel and is a good venue for those looking for peace and quiet. The rock is generally good but some of the thinner flakes can be brittle. The crag has not been popular in recent years but has a both a good selection of mid range routes and a number of worthwhile harder lines.
