Importance: National CRoW Land: Yes
Ownership: Private No. of Routes: 97

Please refrain from climbing until the rock is properly dry - the sandstone becomes brittle after rain.

Warning Feb 2015 - A section of drystone wall has collpased above the Triple Cracks area of the crag. Remains of the wall now lie at th base of the crag but some substantial blocks of masonary and wall are still above the crag and yet to fall down. Local climbers, the Northumberland Mountaineering Club  and BMC volunteers are looking into the best way to make this safe (along with the local landowner). It may be wise to avoid this section of the cliff for the present time.

CRoW Information

The northern section of the crag, beyond the wall, is on CRoW land. The southern section is not, nor is the approach route to the crag. Please respect the farmer's wishes when using this part of the crag.
