Approach notes

Roadside boulders, parking allowed in the layby opposite, though it often gets full when busy. If it is you may need to park at chapel stile.

Climbers are asked to observe a voluntary ban and avoid climbing problems 1-3 and the starts of 4 and 5 on the bottom boulder, due to historic examples of cup and ring markings found on the uphill side of the bottom boulder.


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.
