Clints Crags from GR: NY 15458 35672ronaldo33311/11/2017
A loop extension from the Wainwright summit. The barbed wire fence is easily negotiated. The tiny cairn at the summit is so overgrown that I only realised it was there when I felt the stones under my feet. Grandstand views into the quarry, with its still, flooded craters. Also visited high point of limestone pavement.Nick Down115/10/2017

Spoil heap on edge of quarry is clearly higher, and is becoming vegetated. Visited it just in case.mae01/01/2017
From Blindcrake village on Row to Sunderland. Minor detour to this pleasant limestone pavement. Excellent views. Access no problem. Back same way and re-bagged the Wainwright topHillsidenick23/04/2016
With Wainwright summit. Parked on grass verge to north of Blindcrake at NY 15350 35410. Walked SW along road for c300m to public footpath. Wainwright summit now sports tiny cairn. Carried on along PROW to gate then turned left and followed fence up to limestone pavement. Crossed this to highest point which is an obvious grassy edge with short drop.David Gradwell16/01/2016
Did Wainwright walk from Blindcrake - slight detour to this top - moss covered limestone pavement proved tricky. Top is at northern end of small wood.citygent01/10/2015
From E. Nice bit of limestone pavement. Visited the other 2 tops years ago but not the P30.RHW17/05/2015

by FP from 151,351.WO and Tump. Tump summit is the tiny 250m ring contour which I made NY16396,35499. There is a higher point at 16170,35573 but this presumably is a mature quarry spoil heap which doesn't count?Crib Goch01/02/2015
