Priced 15. "The delightful valley extending south from Keswick with many crags. Crags often obscured by trees give hidden gems on a mixture of crags. An area where the peregrine falcon will puzzle at our earthbound climbing activities. Classic routes from Little Chamonix (VD) to Caution (E9)" - FRCC site.
