Topic - Top Rope routes Lake District - near Scafell/Wasdale

megamonkeyman on 27 Jul 2013
Hi, first post for a climbing forum. I need some advice on short toprope routes near Scafell pike/Wasdale (or within an hour drive).

It will be my first time trad climbing and ideally I want to toperope it for confidence in setting protection. The kit I have consists of a 35m rope with a variation of slings and a couple of quick draws. Ideally if I can use these then it would be a bonus!

We will camp at Wasdale head National Trust campsite. I bought a guide today 'Lake District Rock' which has a couple of short routes:

-Scout Crags
-Long Scar
-Bell Stand
-Hare Crag

Would any of these have decent top rope protection?

I would be comfortable climbing up to 5c max.

Cheers guys!
