GR.214106 750m W Facing Opposite Gable Crag these West Facing crags come into condition quite often and hold snow for a long time in a cold spell. The routes all rely on Frozen turf and a build up of Hoar frost. If you walk in from Honister you have Gable to go at as well so your walk shouldn’t be wasted. There is potential for more exploration on the crag. Approach: Park at Honister, approach as for Gable crag, when you’re under Brandreth you can either take the lower path which comes in under the crags or you can go over Green Gable and drop into the base of the crag from Windy Gap
