Nesscliffe - Slab And Warm Up

About
Easy access with a high concentration problems makes these walls the most popular area at the crag.
Directions
From the car park enter the woods and turn right and follow the main path until you reach the stairs. From the top of the stairs follow the track on your left up the hillside. When you reach the bold arete of Open Air (E3) continue straight to soon find yourself at Kynastons Cave. (Slab, Scoop and Ed's wall are adjoining)
