Runestone Quarry

Climbs 25 – Rocktype Slate – Altitude 250m a.s.l – Faces all

Crag features
Overlooking Little Langdale Tarn. Some poor rock but some good routes as well. The quarry is a long 'trench' running roughly N-S.

Most of the routes have one or two bolts - the FRCC guide does give some of them a 'sport' grade.

Approach notes
Can be approached either from Cathedral Quarry (parking as for that crag) or park as for Tilberthwaite and walk along the quarry track just past the cottages 100m beyond the parking.
