Dunnerdale Boulders

Climbs 66 – Rocktype Andesite – Altitude ? – Faces SE

Crag features
As all the sectors face southeast they get plenty of sun and ventilation and, with the exception of a couple of blocks none of the climbing is effected by tree cover. The exposed nature of the area does mean it can prove could during blustery weather; however this also means the rock dries extremely quickly after rain.

The standout boulders are the Buckstone, Cool Logic Block, Brandy Stone and the Laser Quest Block.

Access notes
Park at Birk Bridge Car Park and continue on foot across the bridge and on up the large bridleway. Sector A starts a mere 300m from the parking!

DO NOT drive up the bridleway

Amazing bouldering in a fantastic setting, was here early April 2013 and it felt like I could have been anywhere in the world. Once again my opinion of the Duddon Valley as one of the best "undiscovered gems" of the Lakes is justified, truly an excellent addition to the Lakes, well done Mr Chapman and co. I will definitely be making lots of return visits!

Fair point Greg, I was ill that weekend so did very little. The Laser Quest and Cool Logic blocks have got some awesome problems that my mates did (they don't log their climbs on here though).

In reply to Whealiebob's comment: as stated in the various news reports, most of the best problems are V5/6c+ and above, and with the greatest respects you were climbing V0 to V1's. So I think it is a bit unfair to right it off as disappointing. jus The fairest criticism, is to say it is a little spread out. But for those seeking out mid to harder grade lines to get stuck in to, rather than just circuiting, its a good venue.

We were quite disappointed after visting. There are some good problems, but many are very poor.
