Easiest access to crag is follow Helm Crag path up hillside a few yards until you get to a big cairn where you fork off left. Great routes but gear is well spaced so expect to be sand bagged!

As said above - a good evening crag. Quite slatey in its lower reaches but lovely, rough rock from mid-hieght upwards. Beautiful outlook, peaceful and a few cracking routes; worth a visit.
