Route 1, Ken's Wall, Kenny the Lad and Taurus have all now had a bit of a brush up! (August 2011)

Some quite good looking routes - but very much in need of some traffic! Short walk in, single pitch routes near to Kendal - just in need of a bit of a brush off. (Note to self - get very big brush...)
