Tom On The Diamond Left, Chapel Stile © sjbutterworth

Crag features

The Chapel Stile circuit is the area of small craglets, both natural and quarried, situated on the fell side above Chapel Stile in Langdale. The area has long been used by local climbers but the ‘Circuit’ has always been something of a mystery - difficult to describe and not obvious. Most people just visit ‘Rough Wall’ but as you will discover there is a wealth of excellent bouldering here and plenty of scope for development on the easy walls and slabs strewn across the pleasant hillside.

Approach notes

Park anywhere in Chapel Stile that is not blocking an entrance and is not at the Co-op. Head up to the Church and go up some steps to its right. Go through a gate and head right past a house on the left and head up the hillside to a path.


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.
