DIB SCAR


Dib Scar is a quaint horseshoe-shaped cove that lies hidden across the dale from its illustrious neighbour Kilnsey. It doesn't have a huge number of routes but what there is tends to be of good quality. The main central section of the crag is extremely steep and has the best rock and routes. The Right Wing has less steep rock and gives some easier pitches, both sport and trad. It is especially worth thinking about if a bit of peace and quiet is desired since it is seldom busy.
