CRAG WILLAS


This small crag is about as remote as you could wish for, set in a position of splendid isolation to the west of Reeth in Swaledale. Although not very extensive, or very high, the cliff and associated boulders are composed of good quality gritstone. A single star system has been used to indicate the more worthwhile climbs. The cliff is also known as Healaugh.
