Parking and Approach

No known access problems. From ample parking directly below the left end, either cross the stile and wall into the field below the crag and walk up passing the Small White and Prow Boulders on the way or go down the road and through the gate. Not on access land so please respect the surrounding farmland and keep groups small. The boulders over to the right and above the farm are to be avoided (they are poor anyway).

CRoW Information

Open access land, designated under the Countryside & Rights of Way Act (2000) give area access rather than linear access as provided by public rights of way. It also gives a legal right of access specifically for climbing, as well as walking and other quiet recreation on foot.

Please bear in mind however that the landowner still has the right to restrict access for up to 28 days per year (often used on public safety grounds for shooting in moorland areas), and can also apply for longer term restrictions with Natural England (such as bans on dogs, or regular restrictions during particular times of year). It is important to check for these restrictions regularly as they can be added at short notice – all details for open access land in England can be found on Natural England’s website.
