Goredale Scar

Gordale Scar is a huge gorge created during the Ice Age when melt water created a cavern, the roof of which eventually collapsed.

The waterfall that flows down the scar is on a footpath to Malham Tarn. It can readily be climbed under normal conditions but becomes very difficult, if not impossible, after heavy rain.
