Once up the steep climb of Gordale Scar, an ancient stone staircase leads ever upwards onto the clifftop overlooking Gordale Beck carving its way through the valley deep below. On the far side are the steep cliffs of Low Stony Bank.
On reaching the top of the moors you
can see High Stony Bank in the distance, another huge cliff face east of
Great Close Scar.
Strange mushrooms grow here atop the grassy rocky moors.
