Summary

A partly quarried crag that lies under a verdant tree cover. However, the crag saw a revival of interest in October 2011. Many of the routes in the E1 to E7 range have been cleaned. Not much for lower grade climbers. Best routes: Squirrel Crack E1; Ginny Greenteeth E5.

There is currently very little issue with vegetation affecting approaches or the climbs themselves. The crag seems to be quick drying, which is a bonus.

Approach

From Steeton head along the B6265 for approximately 1km to park by Hawkcliffe farm. Please park considerately and avoid parking near the farm entrance. The approach to Emerald Buttress is 10 minutes from the road: trending left from the wall when a flattening in the woods is encountered.

NO ACCESS FROM ROAD ABOVE. No Dogs or large parties.
