Details of this crag was previously recorded in North of England Rock Climbs by Stewart Wilson. Volunteers are needed to check and update the information on the following pages for a definitive PDF guide to Swaledale.


OS  Landranger Sheet: 92

Map Reference:  161008


This broken and heavily vegetated Limestone crag has a few good lines, it faces North above the River Swale and is parking as for Hudswell Crag. After crossing river, walk downstream and cross a stile. The crag, a series of buttresses is in the woods above. There is much loose rock and the area is popular with the public so care is essential. The climbs are the work of Paul Carling.


Bay of Pigs (VS 4c) is located in a corner bay at the right end of the crag. Climb the crack in the corner past a bulge to a ledge. Continue up the dirty corner above.


Towards the left end of the crag is an obvious descent gully with a prominent off-width crack in the right wall.


The Snark (HS).
