Hill features

Though a famous limestone peak, the climbing is found along the protruding bands of millstone grit which cap the summit. The short bands of gritstone either forms in a single, long, unbroken layer or in many horizontal layers. Where it forms in single layers, obvious splitter cracks are common, where it does not it provides juggy, vertical and overhanging climbing, albeit more prone to choss.

On sunny days the crag can offer amazing views of the Lake District (Conniston Old Man is spottable), Morcambe Bay, Heysham and Pendle Hill.

Approach notes

For climbing at Black Shiver or Falls Foot take either: take the path to the summit from Ingleton up Fell Lane, diverge north across the open Falls Foot moorland and then ascend to the desire buttress; or take the summit path from above The Old Hill Inn to Humphrey Bottom and then contour west along the moorland, ascending to the desired buttress.
