A minor south Peak cliff that sees very little attention. The addition of a quality hard route might put it back on the circuit although this will be too hard for most.
Approach - The crag is seconds from the B5056 that links the A515 to A5012. There is no parking on the road near the crag but there is some space on Pasture Lane, the minor road that leads to Brassington. Turn into here and park just past a gate on the right which is about 150m from the junction. This is marked on the map on page 394. It is a 5 minute walk back to the crag.
