Short routes on sound rough rock over a good grade range. High on the fell but with an easy approach and dries quickly. Best routes are Yellow fever(E2), First Touch(E1), Glass Slipper(E2), Anns Agony(HVS), Skye Ridge(VD).
Needle Arete is an excellent E3 6a.
A number of the routes have thought provoking levels of protection.
A fantastic venue for late/early season, catching any sun that’s going.
Park at the summit of Wrynose Pass by the Three Shire Stone. Twenty minutes steady uphill walk.
