Rather remote but with a good selection of lower grade climbs. There is usually a team or two here although the crowds of the Upper and Lower Tier will not be present.
Approach - From the left-hand end of the Upper Tier, follow the main path up to the top of the crag. Head left until you reach the pond of The Doxey Pool. Skyline Buttress is below the edge here.
