Guidebooks

Lakes Bouldering

The first dedicated bouldering guidebook to the Lake District, spanning a range of areas largely in the National Park and all north and west of the M6 junction 36. The guide is intended to be useful to the visiting climber looking for a day or evening's light bouldering just as much as the hard-core local with decent coverage for the V1 and V9 boulderer alike.

Not an indifferent crag at all, but a delightful venue, save it for a warm summer evening. The current guidebook only shows off a small amount of this crags potential. Rough rock, stunning views, and can get a bit wild - a perfect Lakeland crag

Great for first lead, plenty of routes around

SW facing. Great beginner's crag. Only 15 minutes from the road along a good path yet it's still quiet. Very, very grippy rock but don't fall - they don't call it Long Scar for nothing! However, there's no polish and there's little growing on it as it catches a lot of sun and wind (so can be chilly too). But, the holds tend to be smallish and take the guidebook grades with a heavy pinch of salt (some up, some down).
