Gimmer Crag faces South West and is fairly straightforward in geometry consisting of one main feature. Its situation high on the slopes guarantees many fine positions for its routes.

Getting There 

From the hotel head west then north west up the slope. You'll soon sight the crag which you can make a fairly straight hike towards.
