Guidebooks

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.

Slabby climbing on a quiet gabbro crag. Well worth the effort if combining it with a bit of bouldering on the fellside boulders below the crag. Protection isnt always good but the climbs are all at friendly grades and it all adds to the character.
