One of the best sections of rock on Kinder North is around Mustard Walls; a great set of routes in as remote a setting as you could want. The relatively easy walk in makes this a viable venue for summer evenings.
Approach (see map on page 171) - It is possible to use any of the three main approaches to Kinder North although by far the easiest and quickest is from the Snake Summit via Mill Hill or straight across the moor (steep final approach) if it has been dry.

Mummy Crack
The right-hand crack is difficult to enter, then smack in the jams. You might need bandaging after a tussle with this one!
