Peel Crag


Peel Crag is a 800 metre long north facing Whin Sill outcrop with one of the best sections of the Roman Wall in the UK. The rock gives a good range of steep, exposed routes mostly in the lower and mid-grades.

Crag information
Climbing Area: North East Rock Type: Volcanic
Importance: Regional CRoW Land: No
Ownership: National Trust No. of Routes: 25
Within National Park: Yes Year Developed: 1912
Grid Reference: NY755677

The crag is not mapped as open country under CRoW, something that may surprise anyone who has climbed there. It is, however, in the ownership of the National Trust and access made available by them. BMC is taking up the CRoW mapping issue with Natural England.

A recent rockfall from Chockstone Chimney has left the route in a dangerous state. Climbers are advised to avoid this route due to unavoidable areas of loose rock.
