The long main gorge which drains from the Great Moss provides a superb scramble. It is rarely in condition and needs a good dry spell to be climbable.

Can also be ascended in wetsuit etc. when too wet for a dry scramble. Start at Lingcove Bridge (NY227036) it is easily escapable if any of the falls look to serious.
