Where the directions above say "follow the Dungeon Gill path until level with the double waterfall", the word "level" means "alongside" and not "at the same height as".

This crag is rather neglected, it seems, but some recent additions (particularly Treasure & Pied Piper Direct) make it a good venue for climbers of modest ambitions. A lot of the routes, unfortunately, peter out into scrambling towards the top, but on the plus side the rock is superb up to that point, and the position and outlook are a constant delight. The crag also catches most of the sun available. Advice to first time visitors: follow the Dungeon Gill path until level with the double waterfall. Leave the path and find your way up to the point where the crag changes direction abruptly. The fiendish-looking Waller's Crack is seen up to the left and the square-cut recess where Harristickorner starts is prominent at the left end of a superb looking wall of steep rock. The ledge leading to Treasure and Pied Piper starts here.
