WIMBERRY


The Cinderella of Peak grit, an unsung gem of a crag with a fantastic collection of routes on an impressive series of buttresses in a dramatic setting, and with superb outward views. The down side (there just had to be one) is that the crag faces north and the approach is a bit of a flog.
