Run by Greg Chapman, all round bouldering strongman and a mine of the most in depth (some would say obscure) nuggets of info about Lakes bouldering, the Lakesbloc site is a veritable treasure trove of videos as well as FREE downloadable PDFs to all the best areas. So, from the sandstone of St Bees in the north west across to the igneous eastern Carrock Fell or down to the limestone venues south of Kendal there's a free downloadable guide on the site. And whether you fancy a quick hit at the Bowderstone, a day on Gillercombe or a bimble around Fairy Steps(!) you can find information and inspiration here.

New St Bees Head North PDF - Live and ready to download now
And to get the juices running, Greg's latest meisterwork - the new PDF of St Bees North - is online and downloadable now. St Bees is perhaps the most well known and awesome Lakes bouldering venue, combining an amazing setting with fantastic problems - as Greg says -
"It wasn't too long ago that if you told someone you were off to St. Bees, for a days bouldering, they wouldn't have heard of the place, and if they had it was purely on a sport climbing level. Over the last few years, with the promotion of the area through this site, magazine articles and the Lakes Bouldering Rockfax guide, the area has rightly become recognised and renowned as one of the best bouldering locations in the UK."
