Tortoise Crag Cumbria, ENGLAND
Climbs 21 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude ? – Faces SE
20-30m single pitch slab climbing. Protection is a bit sparse as many of the cracks are blind or choked with earth. Belays difficult to find at the top: there is one good spike above the left-hand end of the crag. Consider bringing a stake as the terrain at the top is grassy.
This crag gave us a pleasant afternoon's climbing, and we'll probably go again.
Note: not in the current Scafell Wasdale guidebook. Details are at present in the FRCC guidebook update

Agree with grades - but there is plenty of pro on some of the routes (but sparse on some also)|

Soloed most of the routes here in a couple of hours. Very pleasant climbing in a beautiful setting. Protection seemed very sparse.
Will go back next time i'm passing.
Grades seem a bit soft, nothing seemed VS, most VD - HS

A nice slabby crag devoid of any useful protection. A pleasant venue for an afternoons soloing?
