Parking

Follow the Reeth road from Askrigg and park at the side of the road where the wall on the right side of the road ends.

Access

From the parking spot follow the wall across the moor until a gate is reached. Go through the gate (please close) and walk to the top of the ridge.

Capacity

In light conditions no more than 5.

Hazards

The site has sharp crags below the top crags. Severe turbulence may be experienced if trying to scratch, especially when the wind is off the face.

 

SEVERE ROTOR has been reported on the top, especially in strong winds and extending a fair way back.

 

If you don't want to land at the bottom, fly back towards the parking area and land just before the road.

Rules

No XC flights between Aug - Dec (shooting season). From Jan - Jul XC flights are permitted; attain at least 1,000 feet ATO before going over the back (to be sure of clearing the moor) going towards Swaledale. No low flights or landing on the moor in any circumstances.

Other Comments Beware of turbulence (especially if the wind is slightly off) and rotor. An under used site with similar XC potential to Stags Fell and an alternative soaring site when Stags Fell is busy.

Owner

Top – Mrs Metcalfe, Brookside, Nappa Scar.
