GENERAL DESCRIPTION: Very narrow with 5 or 6 grade 3/ 4 drops. One being a perfect place to back loop!
Simon Wiles adds...'Didn't run it, Looks tight steep and narrow. You'd get on from the A6 at about GR 554045 or slightly higher for a warm up, and nip across the fields down hill to get to the river. Take out at the end of Borrow Beck. Needs loads of water, was probably a bit boney when we went back for our car, but would be a good start to Borrow Beck.'
OTHER NOTES: You'd only do this as an addition to Borrow Beck.
