Almost a tor surrounding the summit of Simons Seat, the crag has two aspects: the smaller faces south and consists of lower grade cracks and some good, harder faces. The northern aspect is up to 20m high and requires a fine spell to bring it into condition. Some routes can remain green or dusty. It is however home to one of the best VSs on grit: Arête Direct.
Parking seems not to be allowed here now? There is a large pile of grit in the obvious place and a sign saying no parking, turning area only. The track says no vehicles except for access. We parked on the parallel road (Skyreholme Bank) past Upper Skyreholme, the road widens to a track wide enough to park (54.0477720, -1.8838787) , then walk back down the road and through a gate to a footpath across to Howgill where the parking above is described.
