DOW CRAG AREA


This area is dominated by Dow Crag with a couple of smaller areas close by. There is plenty of potential for new routes on both Dow Crag and Blind Tarn Crag. The fastest approach to all areas is from the top of the Walna Scar Road or if road is too icy walk in from Scar Head via Tranearth.
