Can be crowded on weekends as this is home to a number of great moderate cracks. Rock quality as always is great gritstone. There can be a lot of midges in the summer if there is no breeze. Some of the descriptions pulled from UKClimbing.com they have a super comprehensive database worth checking out if you're w.out a guidebook.
It is just to the right of Lovers leap, between there and Cubic Block. Fairly short approach maybe 5 minutes. All routes can be walked off of to the right hand side of the buttress.
