/ Hoad slab ulverston
Also I am going with the intention of setting up a top rope for a small 5 year old will this place be suitable?
And guidance would be great
"Clearly seen from the A590 just north of Ulverston. Park in the steep lane below the hill".
Grid Ref SD 296 790
Think there is a radio mast near to it.
Hope that is of some help
It's really easy to find. Park up in the side streets and walk through the park up the hill towards the lighthouse.
There are bolts at the top for setting up a belay, bring some long slings or rigging rope to extend them over the edge if you wish to set up a toprope (bottom rope).
As this is near a built up area, there was a small amount of broken glass on/around the crag, keep an eye out for it if you are taking your young children.
In fact, here's a picture I took of it when I was there a few years ago http://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=148339
Enjoy your weekend
If it's in the afternoon it'll be dead busy so deffo leave the car in Ford Park - egg rolling.
Because it's Easter weekend there is a chance there will be others there - a rarity for the slab.
You may not want to fork out for a guide however The Hoad is in the FRCC guide to Eden Valley and South Lakes Limestone (and whatever The Hoad is made of).
