Appian Way, Pillar Rock © Gordon Stainforth
Up to about 150m high. Large complex high mountain crag with a great history of classic routes - needs a reasonable dry spell. Thanatos/Electron (HVS), Tapestry (E4), Grooved Wall (VS), North Climb (S), NW Climb (MVS), Megaton (E1), Goodbye to All That (E1), Rib and Slab (HS), New West (VD), SW (MVS)etc, the list of real classics is endless, without even mentioning any of the 2 star routes.
Two and a half hour walk from Wasdale. Best bet is to mountain bike in from Ennerdale. Yes, it's a long way but the crag is superb and remote, so get to it people!
|Once into the cirque, the approach path (from Ennerdale) very vague. Wasted a lot of time on walk in and walk out because of this. Fantastic crag though and well worth the journey!|
