Gnarly bouldering high on the main Clisham pass at 700mtrs and dropping down towards the Scaladale Centre. Some big blankness & overhanging stones providing some excellent roadside antics.

Rock type: Granite

Directions & Approach

Drive up onto the Clisham from the Scali Centre & park up before the tight summit S-bends. The obvious boulders are spread on both sides.

10m east of the big heather hat boulder, below the road (40m from layby). The downhill face is steep with a perfectly situated undercut rail to start. SS on this near the left end, reach the nice crimper and use this to get the 2 handed sloper above the lip. Slap the jug above.
