The approach path leads to the left-hand side of Blue Scar which consists of a fine wall of blue-grey limestone split by two obvious horizontal breaks. Steep wall climbing is the name of the game here often of a sustained, technical and fingery nature. Some of the lines are a bit vegetated and the crag can be a little dirty at the beginning of the season once the restriction is lifted. Guidebook page 272.
