A remote series of small buttresses with a collection of great climbs on some of the best rock around.
Approach - From the left-hand end of the Upper Tier, follow the cliff-top path past the Doxey Pool and on for about 500m (30mins from the main parking.)
Or, from the limited parking on the minor road from Roach Grange to Hazel Barrow, it is about 10 mins along the ridge to the Hard Very Far Skyline buttress.
