Slate Crag

Cumbria, ENGLAND

Climbs 9 – Rocktype UNKNOWN – Altitude 715m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
This is an idyllic venue in good weather with great views and bivi spots below the crag near Yeastyrigg Gill. It gets all the sun there is from midday onwards. The crag seems to be dry after three rain-free days. The sections that stay wet longest have lines of blackish moss/lichen. The routes avoid these, and some climb narrow clean areas between them. As might be expected, there is some loose rock on ledges and the cliff-top. Most of the rock elsewhere on the routes is generally sound. Slug Balancer and Handlebar Club finish through a short, low-angled 'moustache' of dwarf juniper, however, the gear is good immediately under the moustache and the bushes themselves are tough. Single ptch routes up to 25m.
