About Peak Scar (OS):

The North York Moors are not famous for limestone, but this crag could make it that way. Climbs around 100 feet long, most in the lower grades, with about 80 routes total. The ends of the crag are somewhat vegetated, but with more climbing this should improve. For the VS climber this is a great place to visit.

Turn left up the steep hill and continue to a parking spot on the right in about a mile and a half. The cliff is down to the right.
