Stanhope Dene Approach

Ashes Quarry Approach

Bollihope Valley and Forgotten Quarry

Skear Scar - Jacks Scar

Skears Scar is quite an old traditional venue which has been forgotten for many years. It has been cleaned and old routes made into sports climbs. Many new lines have been added.

The limestone buttresses range in height from 8m to 20m and offer some steep lines.

The climbing is located in a hidden valley on the edge of Middleton-in-Teesdale.
