About Oxenber Scar(OS):

A short crag here, about 30 to 60 feet tall, with about 50 routes in the grades DIFF to E3, and quite evenly spread across the grades. The crag faces west, dries quickly, and is solid in most places. The vegetation here is rarely on routes, and it is quite sheltered and pleasant. Worth a visit or two.
Nearest town or city: Settle
Directions: OS98--GR779/683 Four miles northwest of Settle. Take the A665 and turn off to Austwick after 4.3 miles. Go down this lane for half a mile and park at the path on the right before the bridge. Follow this pathway on the right for 400 yards to a sharp right turn, go straight, then fork right after 300 yards and follow a footpath to the crag, about five minutes walk. It is requested that the walls here not be climbed over to gain access to the crags. Doing so may threaten access to these nice cliffs.
