/ WALL SHOWCASE: Kendal Wall
some inspirational article on Gable, Scafell, East Butteress, Esk butteress ect. might get people up their climbing more than just the hard/classic/extreme rock routes. and would stop the crags from becoming over grown.
people might also realise that the lakes is better/harder than north wales.
They do its called crag of the day
Also as well as being famed for its lakes, and hills the lakes is also famed for its rain. Were you to spend a week (or even a weekend) in the lakes they is a good chance that you might encounter said rain, a Kendal wall beats the hell out of Trapsing round Ambleside looking at coats. Its also open when its dark.
It may be useful to include the weekend opening hours in the article.
Saturday and Sunday 10am - 7pm
Just sent you an e-mail.
Well, then. I've visited Kendal Wall once (we were in NW Yorkshire, and it was raining, so we looked for an indoor wall, and picked Kendal)
And the standout feature for me was the Stalagmite/Stalactite.
As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to try it at some point in the session, and make a good attempt at onsighting something on it. As it happens there were 2 routes in my grade, and I flashed one of them, and got to the top with a broad grin and a feeling of genuine achievement, a proper indoor wall "woohoo" route!
