Gaitkins Cumbria, ENGLAND
Climbs 68 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 640m a.s.l – Faces SW
A delightfully situated series of buttresses, generally up to about 16m in height. There are a few longer routes and many shorter, mostly on excellent rock. Broadly divided into Upper Gaitkins (further left on the hillside when viewed from below), Middle Gaitkins (100m down and right), and Lower Gaitkins (further right and lower!), a little exploration is required to discover all the component buttresses.
Upper Gaitkins includes the routes from 'Brass Plaque Vandals' to Four Play.
Middle Gaitkins includes the routes from 'Pedestel Route' to 'Right Arete'
Lower Gaitkins includes the routes from 'Dog's Breakfast' to 'Solo Slab'
Approximately 50 minutes pleasant walk from the Three Shires Stone at the summit of Wrynose Pass. Head towards Red Tarn but before reaching it, cut left across the marshy valley and climb the flank of Cold Pike - contour around to reach the various buttresses which are somewhat spread out.
