Topic - Falcon Crag Borrowdale
| by - Dave Cumberland on - 22 Jul 2012
|The pervasive Lake District bracken and jungle are taking over Falcon. It is almost impossible to get to the bottom of the crag. Local climbers - please go and clear the paths and route bases. These are classic multi-starred routes - no one is doing them, perhaps everyone is boulderbating or going abroad? Same at other valley crags - paths disappearing, jungle taking over after several years of cold, wet, sunless summers.|
Give something back - Use it or lose it. Take bracken sticks or tools. At this rate the National Park Authority will achieve their ambition and climbing as we know it will end in the Lake District valley crags as they return to grass, heather, gorse, hawthorn, bracken and briar.
