Mainly long routes up to 100m in a superb mountain setting. Notoriously chilly even when the sun is shining!
Park in the carpark at the top of the tarmaced section of the Walna Scar road - it's no longer permissible to drive any further.
Approach time: 1 hour
|Probably the best crag in the Lakes, it has classic routes at every grade. The notoriety that this crag is cold comes from those idiots who insist on starting their routes in shorts and t-shirts. Always carry (and wear!)an extra sweater.|
