About Beacon Scar (OS):

A damp, wooded, green crag facing northwest. During a dry spell, the climbing here is very good and well worth the visit. About 50 climbs, lots of DIFFS and SEVERES, with several HVS and even a couple of Extremes up to E4. Some routes actually approach 70 feet in height. Beware of some of the finishes, though, the top is not always solid.

7 miles southwest of Stokesley. Take the A172 south to Swainby, turn left onto the small road heading right towards Osmotherly and after 1.5 miles, park on the right. A path leads from here up the ridge to the top of the hill and the crag is just on the other side.
