Main wall, Jackdaws' Scar, Kings Meaburn
Known to climbers as "Kings Meaburn" this crag rises above the River Lyvennet here attaining a height of about 15m. They are unusual from a climbing perspective in that two rock-types can be experienced on one route - the lower 2 or 3 metres are sandstone and the upper sections are limestone. The transition is clearly seen as a prominent horizontal bedding plane just above Ali. The limestone tends to overhang and unfortunately, this has led to some quite large blocks falling off on some of the climbs.
