About Padda Crag (OS):

Too bad this crag is so remote, for there is some excellent Northumberland sandstone here. About 50 routes, 30 feet tall, rated from DIFF to 6a, with countless boulder problems. South facing and a bit high up, it gets cold and damp in the winter, but catches the sun well.
Nearest town or city: Haltwhistle
Directions: OS 86 GR NY 650 788 Alt. 363m
10 miles north of Haltwhistle, 1.5 miles northwest of Churnsike Lodge. Take the small road from Gisland to Churnsike Lodge, then follow a track west for half a mile, past a demolished barn on the left, then turn right up another track for a mile, where you will see the crag on the right.
